Do You Dare?

A woman known for being daring, brave and adventurous was born in 1897. In 1932, she became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. Later that year, she was the first woman to make a solo, nonstop flight across the United States. On June 1, 1937, she attempted to fly around the world. Tragically, her plane vanished near Howland Island in the Pacific Ocean and no trace of her or her plane has been definitively found.
