Life is riddled with many mysteries which we may never really find the answers to: Why is the sky blue? What is the secret to ageless beauty? Whatever happened to Amelia Earhart?
Seventy-five years after her mysterious disappearance and on her 115th birthday, Google honors the pioneering aviator Amelia Earhart with a doodle. It shows her climbing up her Lockheed Vega 5B monoplane, with her yellow scarf flowing in the wind. The Google letters are painted below the wings of the aircraft.
This single-engine plane catapulted her to the status of being the first woman to fly across the Atlantic alone on May 20-21, 1932.
Along with her navigator Fred Noonan, Earhart set out to fly around the world on July 2, 1937. Unfortunately though, their twin-engine plane vanished in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. They had already completed more than two-thirds of their goal when they mysteriously disappeared.
Search operations were conducted, but they all were in vain.
Amelia Earhart’s disappearance continues to be one of the most long-lived mysteries in the history of aviation. The world will forever remember this woman who could have been the first pilot to circumnavigate the globe around the equator. Her achievements in aviation will continue to take flight.
