Amelia Earhart No Fear
By: Calvin B.
New Hampshire, Age 10


6/20/1937

Amelia Earhart arrived today in Hawaii to start her flight around the world. She was asked, What are you crazy to fly around the world?! It is a big world. She answered, I am not afraid. I want to do something that no one has ever done. Another reporter asked, What kind of plane do you have? I have a Lockheed Electra 10E plane. Purdue University gave it to me on July 24, my 39th birthday. She answered. Someone else asked her if she was afraid and she said, I have some fear, but I know that I can fly a plane well.


A reporter asked Amelia if the crash of the Hindenburg scared her. She answered, That was a giant airship, a giant blimp. I am going in an airplane. She said, I dont believe that the Hindenburg could scare me a single bit. I dont have hydrogen. I have motor power.
