Amelia Earhart was America's 'Queen of the Air'.
On May 20 1932, Amelia Earhart set off from Newfoundland to attempt her record breaking transatlantic crossing. The next day, after a flight lasting almost 15 hours, she landed her bright red, state-of-the art aircraft in a small field outside Londonderry. The town people of Derry – ‘where even a car was still a novelty’ - flocked to see this feminist celebrity. Historic aviation artist Sherry Lee Boggs beautifully illustrates this
legend in her limited edition print of 100.
