The Amelia Earhart Story Comic Strip
January 4, 1942 Baltimore Morning Sun

The Amelia Earhart Story Comic Strips: December 14, 1941 Baltimore Morning Sun - Airplanes and RocketsThe Baltimore Sun newspaper, published not far from where I grew up near Annapolis, Maryland, carried "Flyin' Jenny" from the late 1930s until the strip ended in the mid 1940s, so I saved a couple dozen from there. While looking for the "Flyin' Jenny" comics, I ran across this comic strip done to commemorate the attempted around-the-world flight by Amelia Earhart. She and her navigator Fred Noonan, as you likely already know, are to believed to have been lost at sea after taking off on June 1, 1937, from Miami, Florida, in her Lockheed Model 10-E Electra, heading east. The last radio contact from Mrs. Earhart was received on July 2, near Howland Island, in the South Pacific.

Previous to her circumnavigation attempt, Amelia became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean in May of 1932 in her very recognizable red Lockheed Vega 5b. In March of 1937, she flew from Oakland, California to Honolulu, Hawaii.
