Everybody has heard of the famous pilot, Amelia Earhart. But what ever happened to her? In March of 1937, she flew to Hawaii with fellow pilot Paul Mauntz, to attempt to fly around the world. But on takeoff she lost control of her plane and crashed it, ruining their chance to fly around the world. But in June of 1937, she went to Miami with a different pilot called Fred Noonan, to give it another shot.For some strange reason, she left behind important communications and navigation equipment. They made it to New Guinea in 22 days. they then departed to Howland island, a small island in the middle of the Pacific ocean. Shortly after, they were both heard on one of the radio networks by a fleet of naval ships. They were never seen again. Amelia Earhart is,and always will be one of the greatest pilots of our time.
