"My Flight from Hawaii" by Amelia Earhart
« on: August 18, 2012, 03:16:34 AM »

Good Morning! Several weeks ago as I was doing research on Amelia, I stumbled upon this in the Kansas Room of the Hays Public Library.  The enclosed article was taken from the May 1935 edition of the National Geographic Magazine. Although this was not from Amelia's world flight, I found it rather intriquing as it talked alot about her flying and landing abilities as a pilot in her very own words. After reading this you will get a sense of appreciation and what it must have been like to fly along with her in the cockpit! Please be advised that some of the last few pages are missing of this article!

Thanks for posting this Randy. This is very interesting. She describes what she would do in a ditching, and how she considered it dangerous. 
Also I had been looking to see what she called the airplane, a "ship" or a "plane" in relation to what Dana Randolf heard. "Ship is on a reef south of equator" . It appears from reading this, she either called it a "plane" or "airplane" so maybe the "ship" was the Norwich City
