Amelia Earhart

Itasca & the search for Amelia Earhart

It is one of history’s greatest unsolved mysteries – the disappearance of aviatrix Amelia Earhart. Earhart is known for many things – including being the first woman to receive the U.S. Distinguished Flying Cross and the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean – but none has captured the imagination of Americans quite like her disappearance on her quest to fly 29,000 miles around the globe.
