Aviatrix Amelia Earhart went missing sometime on this day or yesterday in 1937.

"Please know that I am quite aware of the hazards. Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be but a challenge to others." -- Her last letter to her husband before her last flight.

"KHAQQ calling Itasca. We must be on you, but cannot see you. Gas is running low." -- her last radio communiqué before her disappearance.
