Amelia Earhart’s last flight was started on May 21, 1937 in Oakland, California, and ended January 5th 1939 when her body could not be found and she was declared dead. Her ambition was to fly across the world and in one of her last legs of the flight to Howland she never made it and was said to have crashed never to be found.
