Amelia Earhart

Famed aviatrix Amelia Earhart visited Hawaii in December 1934 and embarked on a record breaking solo flight from Honolulu to Oakland on January 11, 1935. She returned to Hawaii on March 18, 1937 on the first leg of her east to west trip around the world. The trip was aborted in Honolulu when her plane had a flat tire when taxiing for takeoff on the next leg to Howland Island.
