THE A1 LEGENDARY WOMAN…Amelia Mary Earhart (born July 24, 1897; missing July 2, 1937; declared legally dead January 5, 1939) was a noted American aviation pioneer and author. Earhart was the first woman to receive the U.S. Distinguished Flying Cross, awarded for becoming the first aviatrix to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She set many other records, wrote best-selling books about her flying experiences and was instrumental in the formation of The Ninety-Nines, an organization for female pilots. Earhart joined the faculty of the world-famous Purdue University aviation department in 1935 as a visiting faculty member to counsel women on careers and help inspire others with her love for aviation. She was also a member of the National Woman's Party, and an early supporter of the Equal Rights Amendment.

the jacket from the second pic is an Abercrombie & Fitch that she was wearing during a first cross Atlantic flight in 1932 .the jacket is now displayed at Perdue University in a window display dedicated to her memory.ReplyDelete
the first jacket is similar to the one i'll post .
