Amelia Earhart set two of her many aviation records in this bright red Lockheed 5B Vega. In 1932 she flew it alone across the Atlantic Ocean, then flew it nonstop across the United States-both firsts for a woman. Highlighted in this image is the wing of the Lockheed 5B Vega. Painted on the wing is the number seven.
