Amelia Earhart’s Lockheed Vega airplane

Amelia Earhart's Lockheed Vega airplane is unloaded from the ocean liner Lurline in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1934. (The plane hangs from crane cables, silhouetted against the sky.) This Pan Pacific Press Photo, from December 1934, is now in the collections of the U.S. Library of Congress.
