She was the first woman to fly the Atlantic in a plane (1928); the second person, and the first woman, to fly solo across the Atlantic (1932); and the first woman to fly solo across the continental U.S. This photograph of Earhart standing in front of her Lockheed Vega airplane was taken in 1935 while her plane was being repaired at Lockheed Aircraft. Officials at Lockheed asked Earhart, to pose for some publicity photographs. Earhart agreed, and Lockheed assigned Joe Washburn, their best photographer, to take the pictures, which have become iconic: one was used on the Amelia Earhart stamp issued by the U.S. Postal Service. Tiny closed tear along left side of photograph. Fine condition.
