Lockheed 5B Vega in Pioneers of Flight

Amelia Earhart flew this Lockheed 5B Vega solo across the Atlantic and non-stop across the United States -- both firsts for a woman. Earhart left a greater legacy than her many record flights. She also helped promote aviation and air travel, espeically among women, and proved that a woman could handle an airplane as well as a man.
