Amelia Earhart – ‘Still Flying Although Married’

The pioneering aviatrix, Amelia Earhart (‘Lady Lindy’), was born in Atchison, Kansas, on 24 July 1897.

To celebrate her birthday, we’ve included a wee story below about Earhart’s thoughts on how best to combine flying with marriage. “It’s about fifty-fifty”, she opined.

We’ve also included a wonderful photo of Earhart, all dressed up in her flying togs and ready for take-off!

The Archive contains scores of interesting stories about the life and amazing achievements of Amelia Earhart, and also the other pioneering aviatrixes from that aviatrixal era.
