Flight to Africa

Barley Hugg, Location Historian

Amelia Earhart flew over a big stretch of water when she left South America for Africa.  She was the first woman to make the eastward flight over the South Atlantic.  She landed in St. Louis.  No, not the one in Missouri, the one in Senegal.  Senegal is in Africa and St. Louis was a part of French West Africa.  St. Louis was the headquarters of Air France.  Earhart actually decided during her flight to go there.  She didn’t like the look of the route to the south, so she just headed a bit left and landed in St. Louis instead of Dakar.
