One gelatin silver print or original vintage press photographic reproduction from the archives of the Star Tribune depicting Amelia Earhart in a lovely portrait seated on the wing of the Avro Avian biplane she bought from world-renowned Irish pilot Mary Lady Heath. Heath was an inspiration to Earhart, here as Amelia points to medals attached to the plane that were achieved from Heath’s solo flight over Europe and Africa.

Amelia Earhart was an American aviation pioneer, the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean, and an early aviator who promoted commercial air travel. Earhart's legacy stands as a member of the National Women's Hall of Fame and one of the most inspirational American figures, she is an aviation icon.
