Trading on her physical resemblance to Lindbergh,whom the press had dubbed "Lucky Lindy", some newspapers and magazines began referring to Earhart as "Lady Lindy".As an American aviation pioneerand author, she was the first female aviator to fly soloacross the Atlantic Ocean for which she received theU.S. Distinguished Flying Cross. She set many other records, wrote best-selling books about her flying experiences and was instrumental in the formation of The Ninety-Nines, an organization for female pilots. She also created and promoted a line of women's clothing called Amelia Earhart Fashions. During an attempt to make a circumnavigational flight of the globe in 1937 in a Lockheed Model 10 Electra, Earhart, and her co-pilot Fred Noonan, disappeared over the central Pacific Ocean near Howland Island. Fascination with her life, career and disappearance continues to this day.
