78th Anniversary historic flight

2 posts in this topic

On 11 January 1935 Amelia Earhart successfully flew solo from Honolulu, Hawaii to Oakland, California.

The 2,400 mile (3,862 km) flight took 18 hours and earned her a $10,000 prize as the first to ever do so. $10,000 in 1935 is the equivalent of about $160,000 today...
