On July 2, 1937, Amelia Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, are on the last leg of an around-the-world flight. She had already earned the fame as the first woman to cross the Atlantic Ocean, but as a passenger. Embarrassed that her fame had not been earned, she sets about to set myriad aviation records. In 1932 she recreates her earlier transatlantic flight, becoming the first female pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic. After 10 years of notoriety, she plans to fly around the world.
