She was a world famous aviator attempting to circumnavigate the globe by air. However, on June 2, 1937, Amelia Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, disappeared over the Pacific Ocean. The U.S. Navy and Coast Guard undertook one of the largest air and sea searches in American history. They were unable to find any trace of Earhart’s Lockheed Electra plane or its crew.
