Amelia Earhart had been a pilot for more than 10 years and broken many records. Then suddenly, in 1937 Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, went out on a worldwide flight to break another record, but  about two-thirds of the way the, they vanished. People believe that they crashed in the ocean around Howland Island, but some people think otherwise.

Amelia Earhart had been a pilot for many years before she went out on a worldwide flight and never returned. People have many different ideas about what happened to her. For example, some say she was captured and executed by the Japanese. Others say Earhart and Noonan were spies and returned to the U.S. with different identities, she survived was repatriated to New Jersey and lived her life under an assumed name. According to History.com most people believe Earhart and Noonan crashed because they ran out of fuel trying to find an island to refuel.

Nadia B. in 7th grade said, “ I don’t think that Amelia Earhart died when she was in the plane crash, I think she landed on an island and died there.” She thought this because, “ I heard of this theory and it stood out.” Emily Watson, 7th grade “I think she was found on an island and taken in by another country and no one said anything” she said that she thought this because, “They didn’t find any real remains from her in the ocean.”

Many people would probably think that Amelia Earhart always wanted to be a pilot, but it was just about the opposite. When Amelia Earhart was about 10, she saw her first plane and wasn’t impressed, according to Amelia Earhart biography she said, It was a thing of rusty wire and wood and looked not at all interesting.” When she was about 23, her family forced her to take flying lessons and after about 2 years she was able to buy her own plane and start flying on her own.

Right after Amelia Earhart got into flying, she married to a publisher, George Palmer Putnam in 1931, but continued her career under her maiden name. As an aviator she was able to break many records such as, first woman to fly across the Atlantic, made a record of 14 hours 56 minutes from Newfoundland to Ireland, and she was the first person to ever make it successfully from Hawaii to California. Amelia Earhart accomplished many things in her life and sadly ended in a mystery.
