Google Doodle

Today's Google Doodle celebrates the birth of female aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart 115 years ago. 

The exploits of the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic have inspired generations of adventurous young girls. Earhart's plane disappeared over the Pacific ocean 75 years ago whilst she was undertaking an attempt to circumnavigate the globe. A recent multi-million dollar expedition seeking the wreckage of the doomed flight returned with no results.
