Last Words Series - Amelia Earhart

15.00

This series is a collection of prints inspired by the last words of various artists, authors, scientists and pioneering human beings who have influenced us in some way or another. Their last words are sometimes premeditated, while others are captured before they meet their abrupt or unexpected end. 

The first female to cross the Atlantic Ocean while flying solo, Amelia Earhart was a aviator pioneer. She held a number of speed and distance records in a number of different aircrafts and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross from the U.S. Congress. In 1935, Earhart set out on her most ambitious goal yet, to be the first person to circle the globe at the equator. After completing about 22,000 miles of her journey, the last 7,000 over the Pacific turned tragic. While the real story remains a mystery, it is believed that while attempting to land at Howland Island she ran out of fuel and crashing into the Ocean. Her last words were radio communication to the U.S. Coast Guard Vessel, Itasca.

"KHAQQ calling Itasca, We must be on you but cannot see you. Gas is running low"
