DSC 0230 (1) Douglas DC-3 "Electra"

This aircraft was the make and model flown by Amelia Earhart on her last journey. This aircraft had been tested like iron in a fire, with the exception of a newly installed, updated communications system. Ms. Earhart was too impatient, and as a result, the system failed on her by losing contact with sea support. Eventually the aircraft ran out of fuel and it is believed that she crashed approximately 50 miles from her next stop. Thanks for looking,

    Ms. Earhart's aircraft on that final adventure was a Lockheed 10E electra. Nice photo of the DC-3, though.
