Amelia's last flight

By now, most of you have heard about a wonderful pilot named Amelia Earhart who has spent three months preparing for an ''around the world'' adventure. Amelia and her navigator, Fred Noonan, had been very excited about the trip. I think they would have stayed home if they knew what would happen in their future.
Amelia and Fred experienced a crash while taking off in Hawaii back and March. The crash damaged the Electra 10E. After restoring the plane, they try again. Amelia and Fred depart on June first, flying from Miami to India.
Yesterday, the Electra crew flew over the Pacific. Sadly, the team never arrived. President Roosevelt has many search teams looking for them right now. I think we have seen the last of Amelia Earhart.
