Food, clothing, on her last trip probally only food and a little water so she could survive. It was a small plane so it's not like she could have put her plane on auto and change and have a feast. simple things that kept her alive ANS 3 -Amelia usually packed boiled eggs and tomato juice to eat on long flights and seldom carried clothing as she would plan on buying clothing when she arrived.

What did Amelia Earhart do?

User Avatar
Amelia Earhart (1897-1937?) was the first woman to fly across the Atlantic ocean solo. On an attempt to fly around the world, her plane went down in the Pacific Ocean and the whereabouts of her body (and that of her navigator Fred Noonan) are still unknown. Some believe that they have found her bones on a small atoll called Nikumaroro (Gardner Island) near Tuvalu. See the Earhart related link for more info.

How do you make an artificial Amelia Earhart costume?

User Avatar
Look I know that it may be hard and you wanna be able to do this spending no money. So if you have a leather jacket use it or if you dont its fine. Second underneath the leather jacket wear a button up collar neck. Also just wear your hair down. And for pants wear jeans or tan jeans. Hope this helps

Who were Amelia Earhart and Jean Batten?

User Avatar
They were two different women, both aviatrixes. Amelia Earhart is a household word. Miss Batten, however is not as well known. She was from New Zealand, made a number of record flights in the thirties, and survived WW2. It is not known if she was involved in any female auxiliary arms such as the WASPS or something similar- the British ATA air transport auxiliary. Miss Batten died in 1982 in seclusion. She passed on in Majorca, Spain.

Yes! Her dad paid 10$ for her first flight for 10 minutes. Back then 10$ was a lot but Amelia came from a wealthy family who supported her love to fly.

What did Amelia Earhart name her plane?

User Avatar
Amelia named many of her aircraft. The first was 'Canary' , a bright yellow Kinner Airster in which she made many flights. Her most well known plane was a red Lockheed Vega 5, which she called "the little red bus". This was the same type of aircraft flown by the famous Wiley Post ( who had flown it around the world ) . Amelia's final aircraft was the Lockheed Electra 10E which she called 'the Flying Laboratory'. This was actually owned by Purdue University for whom Amelia worked at that time.

What was the name of Amelia Earhart's plane?

User Avatar
There are several planes correctly associated with Amelia Earhart. There was also an autogyro used for altitude record attempts (many of which still hold as autogyros are obsolete). Her autogyro flights were sponsored by the Beech-Nut company. Her first was a yellow Kinner Airster that she bought in 1921. Amelia named it 'Canary' Her second was an Avro Avian bought in 1929 in England. Fokker tri-motor on floats used for her first Atlantic hop, code named Friendship. This was a Fokker F.VIIB piloted by Wilmer Stutz. This was owned by a publishing company. Lockheed Vega landplane ( high winged, red) known affectionately by Amelia as the little Red Bus. Either it or an identical production model is in the Smithsonian air and space museum. (2) Model l0-E Electras, one written off in a minor accident in Hawaii, the other used in her ill-fated circumnavigation attempt known correctly as the Electra Project. The Electra had different N-serial and radio call letter numbers- the radio call sign being KHAQQ. The fact different codes were used for the regular serial number and the radio call sign (normally these are the same or related) may suggests something clandestine. The N-number roughly corresponds to an automobile "license plate number."

Did Amelia Earhart adopt a child?

User Avatar
No. Amelia and her husband G.P. decided not to have any kids, adopted or otherwise. This was due to their highly stressful (and in Amelia's case dangerous as well) jobs.

What was the best thing Amelia Earhart did?

Possibly, it was how she demonstrated that women were capable of many things that had previously been "male only" domains. The Army Air Force used many women pilots during WW II as delivery and shuttle pilots - that might not have happened without Amelia Earhart.

Did Amelia Earhart write books?

User Avatar
Yes, at least three, plus one that was post-disappearance published by her Husband- the last one called Last Flight ( there is an alternate title- yes, Soaring Wings) this was ascribed to Mr. Putnam. The other books were one with a numerical title- about the Friendship Flight, The Fun of It, and one other one. Also, numerous magazine articles.

How old was Amelia Earhart when she made a roller coaster?

User Avatar
Consult the Amelia Earhart Birthplace museum. They have a replica of this home-made amusement which probably could have been patented as a portative Carnival attraction. She would have been in her teens. Sister Muriel (pidge) collaborated on this project. Againthere is a replica at the museum. A neat improvised amusement device that could have been patented and maybe sold to, say A Major carnival chain.

What game did Amelia Earhart hunt as an adult?

User Avatar
Amelia Earhart did a lot of things but was NOT a Hunter, or rather Huntress. This is some myth arguably the Gun Lobby has stirred up. There is no mention of hunting in any of her admittedly limited autobiographical works, and I have no reason to think she was. On the other hand World War I ( Red Baron) Von Richtofen was an accomplished Hunter long before the War.
