Who was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean?
It took Amelia Earhart 20 hours and 40 minutes to write her name in history, as it was the time of her flight across the Atlantic Ocean. It was the first flight across the Atlantic performed by a woman, which became one of the most important events in the women's history of the 20th century.
On the 20th of May, 1932, early in the morning Amelia departed from Trepassey Harbor, Newfoundland and landed in a pasture in Burry Port, South Wales. This flight earned Amelia numerous prestigious awards. The site of her landing in Ireland became a small museum, which is now opened and called the Amelia Earhart Center.
