Amelia Earhart US Postage Stamp On this day 20th May, in 1932, Amelia Earhart the American aviator, set off from Harbour Grace, Newfoundland on the first solo transatlantic flight by a woman!

The flight lasted 14 hours, 56 minutes and she landed in a field in Culmore, north of Derry, Northern Ireland.

This 8¢ U.S. Air Mail Stamp featuring the aviation heroine was issued on what would have been her 66th birthday on July 24, 1963 (cat. Scott #C68).

The collection of aviation stamps and more specifically U.S. Air Mail Stamps is an increasingly popular thematic specialization known as Aerophilately.
