On May 20, 1932 at 7:20 p.m., with a thermos bottle of Rose Archibald’s soup and a can of tomato juice, Amelia Earhart lifted off from the Harbour Grace, NL Airstrip in her Lockheed Vega and flew into the sunset. 14 hours and 56 minutes, after a challenging flight, she landed in a cow field at Londonderry, Northern Ireland. She became the first Woman Pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic.
The statue is located in Harbour Grace, NL on the site of the Spirit of Harbour Grace, the SS Kyle, and the Visitor Information Centre.
