Today, on 24th July 2012, it’s the 115th birthday of a renowned American aviation pioneer and author, Amelia Mary Earhart. Google is paying tribute to the legend by changing its homepage’s logo to a Earhart Plane’s Google Doodle. Check out the details after the jump.
Amelia was born on July 24, 1897 in Atchison, Kansas. She was recognized as “Lady Lindy,” and was the 16th woman to whom pilot’s license was issued. She had numerous remarkable flights, becoming the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean in 1928, over and above the first person to fly over both the Atlantic and Pacific. In 1937, she strangely vanished while trying to go around the globe from the equator. Several theories have created concerning Earhart’s last days; most of them have been associated to different artifacts that have been found on Pacific islands, including clothing, tools and freckle cream. The lady lindy, Earhart was officially confirmed dead in 1939.
