Episode 34 - What Happened to Amelia Earhart

On July 2, 1937, Amelia Earhart would forever go down in history as one of the most famous aviators the world had ever seen. Flying higher, faster and longer than most men and women of the time, she was most known for being the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean five years earlier. However, on this day in 1937, it wasn't the breaking or setting of any records that would forever keep her name in the history books. Just past midnight on that day in July, Amelia Earhart took off in a brand new Lockheed Electra 10E and disappeared off the face of the earth, never to be seen again.
