Well I got bored so asked all female co workers "who was Amelia Earhart" and the overwhelming response was "she was a pilot that got lost over the Bermuda Triangle!" All the blondes had at least heard of her, but the brunettes are fixated on the triangle dissappearance. None knew she had another person with her or his name (Fred Noonan.)

next weeks test is Eddie Rickenbacker.

Amelia (fish food) Earhart.
The aviation equalivent of Tim (bear chow) Treadwell.

Lets see, she had a severely alcoholic navigator (Fred Noonan).
She was barely a fair pilot.
She could not understand radios and failed to take a (important) trailing wire antenna with her.
She was dumb as a box of rocks, failed to pack a inflatable life boat or and floatation devise.

She was at least as arrogant as Treadwell, and suffered a similar fate. Instead of being eaten by bears
her remains were consumed by Hagfish and crabs.

She flew by Johnson Island and into fame and mystery.
In reality she is merely a famous phuck up.

Note, History is often kind to screw ups and losers.
A notable case is Hill AB Utah. It is named after the moron who wrecked the Boeing model 299 prototype (B-17)
by forgetting the wind lock pins. He obviously ignored the flight control checks during the pre-flight inspection.

There are a few US air bases named for people who srewed up one time to many.

Amelia was a moron. She died because she ignored the advice of her smart and expert navigator.

What a shame he had to die because this twit followed her "female intuition".
