    Aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart would be 115 years old today, and to mark the occasion, Google has created a doodle that shows Amelia climbing onto an aircraft. Amelia Mary Earhart (1897 - disappeared 1937) was an American aviation pioneer and author. She was the first aviatrix to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean.
    During an attempt to make a circumnavigational flight of the globe in 1937 in a Purdue-funded Lockheed Model 10 Electra, Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan disappeared over the central Pacific Ocean near Howland Island.
