Lockheed 5B Vega

Lockheed 5B Vega (NASM 2015) 3496

I photographed this Lockheed 5B Vega at National Air & Space Museum in Washington DC. In 1932, exactly five years after Lindbergh’s historic solo flight across the Atlantic, Amelia Earhart flew this Vega solo across the Atlantic becoming the first woman to do so.
