Amelia Earhart: Someday we'll know

"Whatever happen to Amelia Earhart"
"Who holds the stars up in the sky"

A famous line from the song Someday we'll know, sung by Mandy Moore featuring Jon Foreman. A line that is so true, mysterious and very intriguing. Who is Amelia Earhart?

Atlantic Ocean is one of the largest Ocean, a major body of water in the earth's surface. In 1928, Amelia Mary Earhart also known as Amelia Earhart, serves as a passenger in a Fokker F.VIIb/3m and safely landed at Wales, United Kingdom.From the province of Canada across Atlantic Ocean up to the UK it took them 20 hours and 40 minutes. With this journey she is named as the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean. She was named "Lady Lindy", as a female version of Charles Lindbergh and also called "Queen of the Air".

This is just the beginning, after the famous flight, she attempted and successfully surpasses flight records. The money that she was earning from endorsements and for being an associate editor at Cosmopolitan magazine was use as a finance to her flying expeditions. In 1932, Amelia again crossed the Atlantic Ocean, but this time she is in the pilot seat. After 14 hours, 56 minutes she landed at Derry, Northern Ireland where Amelia Earhart Centre is built.

In 1937 Amelia together with her husband George Putnam finance her fly and attempt a round the world flight with a a record breaker of 29000 miles. June 1 of the same year Amelia and Fred Noonan started the journey, from Miami to Lae New Guinea they already achieved 22000 miles. July 1,1937 they left Lae with a mission to land at Howland Island and fulfill a 29000 miles round the world flight. But the mission was unsuccessful, after the last radio communication with Earhart nothing was heard from them.

Private and government search/rescue operations lasted for almost 2 years. Aside from false radio and recorded signals nothing was found as an evidence of crashed or explosion. No one can tell what happened to them and on January 1939 when her husband requested for "death in absentia", Amelia Earhart legally declared dead.

The disappearance of Amelia is still a mystery, and after 72 years the question is still "What happened to Amelia Earhart?".
