Google Logo Pays Homage To Pioneering Aviatrix Amelia Earhart

Google Amelia Eerhart Tribute

Today’s Google doodle-logo celebrates aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart‘s 115th birthday. According to Wikipedia, “Earhart was the first woman to receive the U.S. Distinguished Flying Cross, awarded for becoming the first aviatrix to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She set many other records, wrote best-selling books about her flying experiences and was instrumental in the formation of The Ninety-Nines, an organization for female pilots.”

She’s famous because she went missing trying to become the first woman to circumnavigate the globe, on July 2, 1937. Recently, the The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery, based on evidence found in the Pacific ocean near where it was speculated she crashed, has been conducting an extensive search for positive proof of solving the “Earhart puzzle.” Unfortunately, despite hopeful clues, they’re now saying “we’re coming home with more questions than answers.”

Regardless, the Google doodle-logo offers a stylish and fitting honor to one of the world’s first women aviation pioneers.
