Human body cannot fly, but now people are able to travel very far distances through planes, jets, helicopters. Thanks to Wright brothers for the invention of the planes. Planes became quite widespread during 20th century. Mainly in the beginning of the 20th century most of the pilots were men. However, Amelia Earhart’s courage and determination inspired many future female pilots.

At this year she flied again over Atlantic Ocean and in 1935 her plane was in over Pasific Ocean and she was the first human to pass Pasific Ocean! It is quite extraordinary and a very unique case even an ordinary man( At that time male force were more dominant) cannot repeat Amelia’s actions!

However, she could not realize another breakthrough. She wanted to ravel the world through her plane.
