Introduction Blank sea, no plane, no communication, and no exact location of the Electra. Amelia Earhart was the first American female to fly across the ocean. She and her plane the Electra set flight to the skies. Amelia disappeared unexpectedly during her journey possibly from lack of fuel or engine failure. This is the story about Amelia Earhart’s solo flight across the ocean. Flying Inspiration Amelia, born to fly was willing to do many of the women 's “firsts” throughout her life of her flying career. Amelia Earhart at a young age tried to fly during her childhood. Her inspiration was a childhood invention. Amelia 's invention worked with a few tweaks of adjustment. (Davis, 1972) When It was just right she tried it out and said, "I flew!" (Davis, 1972) Her and her cousins and friends made, the "rolly coaster." (Davis, 1972) A Famous Flight After her inspiration she was completely into flying and planes. One of her famous first flights was the Friendship. Friendship was one of Amelia 's flights and she got to fly it herself on June 18th. ( Randolph, 1987) This was the first time that she got to fly the Friendship. She and a few others went on the Friendship flight. The Friendship flight took place on June 3, 1928. (Davis, 1972) She thought that her Friendship flight, one of many, would inspire many in the future of flying. (Randolph, 1987) Fames Amelia Earhart had many fames during her life of flying. She was the first female to fly to Europe from America.
Also she wanted to teach kids how to fly when they get older for school. Bessie went to Europe to get more information on how to do tricks and stunts. One day Bessie was flying to get to the West Coast Air Shows and her plane crash she was rushed to the hospital she was ok and alive but she had to stay in the hospital for eighteen months. In May 1,1926 Bessie was going to get a pilot named William D.Wills so,she flew her plane into Orlando to find him because she wanted to do 3 forced landing in her show but she didn’t know how to do it. The plane
Similarly, Lindbergh found a host of other aviators, and even some explorers, that sought after the honor of being the first to fly non-stop across the Atlantic, and gain $25,000 in addition. In the face of competition, Columbus and Lindbergh rose to meet their respective challenges, proving their determined nature, and their will to succeed in what they knew best. Skill also played a crucial role in the endeavors of Columbus and Lindbergh. Without the existing skill and knowledge in their minds, no amount of determination or willpower would have allowed them to succeed. The acquisition of skill in the art of navigating a ship or flying a plane comes
Sally Ride is most commonly known for being the first American women to travel to space, though this was an amazing accomplishment she has done so much more. Even Though she died on July 23, 2012 from pancreatic cancer, her legacy and story will live on through those who work with her and the people that look up to her Sally Kristen Ride was born on May 26, 1951, in Encino, California to Joyce and Dale Ride. Dale Ride was a political science professor, he was one of Sally Ride's biggest mentors and though he lacked knowledge in the field he helped Ride cultivate her interest (Saari 1997). She always found science and mathematics interesting and easy, and prospered in these subjects throughout her schooling. Though she started at Swarthmore
He became well known after this ground breaking flight in 1927. Charles Lindbergh entered into the Transatlantic Flying contest and he flew in his single engine monoplane. He made a non-stop flight in his plane called the Spirit of St. Louis, “After a 33 1/2 - hour flight from Long Island, New York, on May 20-21, 1927, Americans gained a new confidence in air travel. Suddenly, everyone wanted to fly. In 1929 more than 170,000 paying passengers boarded United States Airliners-nearly three times the 60,000 that had flown the previous year” (Bishop).
She grew up being encouraged and pushed by her mother and grandfathers to do the best she could do in school and to never give up. One of the things she credits for her love for engineering was winning second place in her 8th grade science fair and building her first science instrument. Growing up and being the first African American female to graduate with a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering at Howard and a Ph.D. in engineering at Goddard motivated her to work towards motivating minorities and females to get into the science and math fields of
Abigail Adams was a silent hero during the Revolutionary War. She never received a proper education and is known for the letters she sent to John Adams. The soldiers were grateful for her during the war and knew her as a silent hero. Abigail Adams was the first known women’s rights activists.
That is why she started her company for kids interested in the science field. Ride was not just considered a hero because she was the first women and third overall person in space but because of the drive and determination she had and how she put that onto
There Bessie completed flight training at the best school in France and was awarded her Federation Aeronautique Internationale (F.A.I.; international pilot’s license) license on June 15, 1921.” (“www.notablebiographies.com”). Bessie traveled to Europe to gain further flying experience so Bessie could perform in air shows. (“www.notablebiographies.com”). Bessie would be a leader for introducing aviation to any race by finding a school and Bessie would appear before audiences such as in the churches, schools, and theaters to try to persuade people to be pilots.
Their impressive performance earned them more than 150 Flying Crosses, and they helped encourage the eventual expanse of the U.S. armed forces. During the 1920s and 1930s, the exploits of record-setting pilots like Charles During the 1920s and ‘30s, the exploits of record-setting pilots like Charles Lindbergh and Amelia Earhart had aroused the nation, and thousands of young men and women came running to follow in their footsteps. But young African Americans
“The airplane stays up because it doesn 't have time to fall” Wilbur Wright said this quote because he never gave up on inventing the first plane. Through his and orville’s trial and error they created and flew the first plane in mankind. Through their creation they changed the mode of transportation forever. The airplane now travels people, animals and luggage in a very short amount of time. The Wright Brothers didn 't just affect america but the whole world!
Mankind has always had an obsession with flying. The Wright brothers made the first airplane that was able to fly and land on its own power, and after WWII mankind become obsessed with reaching the moon. In 1969 Neil Armstrong did just that. All of these works were made possible by the
