Google Remembers First Woman Aviator Amelia Earhart

July 24, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

We love Google Doodles. We love it more when Google uses them to remind us of important personalities. Today the Google Doodle commemorates the first woman aviator Amelia Earhart.

Google, which usually opts for animated doodles, has used a simple static image to remember the pioneering woman aviator and author whose end is still a puzzle for the world.

The illustration shows a Lockheed Vega 5b-NR-7952. It is apt for the occasion since it was this single engine plane that helped Earhart to claim the title of the first woman aviator, when she crossed the Atlantic on May 20 and 21, 1932.


This time too, Google has thoughtfully placed its logo without disturbing the theme and removing its corporate identity. Google has placed the six letter word under the wings of the aircraft illustration, where the original registration number of the plane could have been.

The honored aviator was on a round the word trip on board a twin engine Lockheed with a co-pilot when the plane vanished on July 2, 1937 giving no trace of the occupants and the plane there after.

The life of this acclaimed aviator inspired many women to take to flying planes which till then was an exclusive men’s turf. Her life has inspired the film ‘Amelia’.
