  1. 1. Amelia Earhart’s life
  2. 2. Introduction • Over the years, the disappearance of Amelia Earhart has spawned almost as many conspiracy theories as the Lindbergh Kidnapping and the Kennedy Assassination. • The world's most famous female aviator disappeared in 1937, as she attempted to become the first woman to fly around the world. With her navigator, Fred Noonan, her Lockheed Electra was last heard from about 100 miles from the tiny Pacific atoll, Howland Island, on July 2, 1937. President Roosevelt authorized an immediate search; no trace was ever found.
  3. 3. Amelia Mary Earhart was born in July 24 1897 Atchison, Kansas Amelia & her sister Pidge were very close as they loved to play together As a young girl she loved the outdoors she would climb trees & loads more, but she was also fond of reading Amelia Earhart
  4. 4. About Her Born July 24, 1897 Atchison, Kansas, U.S. Nationality American Known for First woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean and setting many aviation records. Disappeared July 2, 1937 (aged 39) Pacific Ocean, route to Howland island Status Declared dead in absentia January 5, 1939(1939-01-05) (aged 41) Signature
  5. 5. Childhood • Amelia Earhart was born on July 24, 1897 in Kansas, the daughter of Edwin and Amy Earhart. • At the age of three, she was sent to live with her grandmother (her namesake), mainly because the old woman needed company and a distraction from the deaths of her mother, her son, and her daughter-in-law, as well as the poor mental condition of her husband Alfred. • She liked their home in Atchison, Kansas, especially her large bedroom with views of the nearby river, now a museum open to the public.
  6. 6. Amelia’s educationAmelia was educated at home but when she turned 12 she went to a public school Amelia graduated from Hyde Park High School in 1916
  7. 7. Flying On December 28, 1920, Earhart and her father visited an airfield where Frank Hawks brought her for a spin in his small light aircraft that would forever change Earhart's life. ‘’By the time I had got two or three hundred feet off the ground,’’ she said, "I knew I had to fly." After that she immediately became determined
  8. 8. ♥Marriage For a while Earhart was engaged to Samuel Chapman, a chemical engineer, breaking off her engagement on November 23, 1928. After her engagement Earhart and Putnam had spent a great deal of time together
  9. 9. Plans Early in 1936, Earhart started to plan a round-the- world flight. On St. Patrick's Day, March 17, 1937, Earhart and her crew flew the first leg from Oakland, California to Honolulu, Hawaii. The flight resumed three days later from Luke Field with Earhart, Noonan and Manning and during the takeoff run, Earhart made a mistake. This time flying west to east, the second attempt began with an
  10. 10. On July 2, 1937 (midnight GMT) Earhart and Noonan took off from Lae in the heavily loaded Electra. Their intended destination was Howland Island Through a series of misunderstandings or errors the final approach to Howland Island using radio navigation was not successful. Fred Noonan was Earhart's only crew member for the second flight. They departed Miami on June 1 and after numerous stops in South America, Africa, the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia, arrived at Lae, New Guinea on June 29, 1937. At this stage about 35,000 km of the journey had been completed. The remaining 11,000 km would all be over the Pacific.
  11. 11. Her Last Flight • In 1937 Amelia Earhart attempted an around-the-world flight. Flying a custom-built Lockheed Model 10E Electra, equipped with extra-large gas tanks, she would follow a 'close to the Equator' route, thus going one better than Wiley Post's northern, mid-latitude route. In her first effort, in March of 1937, she flew west, but a crash in Hawaii abruptly ended that trip.
  12. 12. On July 2, 1937 (aged 39) Amelia Earhart disappeared also along with Fred Noonan Pacific Ocean, en route to Howland Island At 7:42 am Earhart radioed "We must be on you, but cannot see you—but gas is running low. Have been unable to reach you by radio. We are flying at 1,000 feet." ♦ lost ♦
