Photos: Earhart begins her Trans-Pacific solo flight
On Jan. 11, 1935, aviator Amelia Earhart began an 18-hour trip from Honolulu to Oakland, California, that made her the first person to fly solo across any part of the Pacific Ocean.
Hawaiian commercial interests had offered a $10,000 award to whoever accomplished the flight first. The American aviatrix completed the 2,400 mile flight on Jan. 12, when she landed safely at Oakland Airport.
Two years later, she attempted with co-pilot Frederick J. Noonan to fly around the world, but her plane was lost in the South Pacific on July 2, 1937.
