New RAeS Aviation Film Night starts off with 'Amelia', 22 June, London!
This film looks at the legendary American pilot Amelia Earhart who disappeared while flying over the Pacific Ocean in 1937 in an attempt to fly around the world.
From the time Amelia first sat in the pilot’s seat, she felt destined to achieve great things. She was the first woman to fly across the Atlantic but was not allowed to pilot the plane, forced instead to watch the world pass by from the rear.
Four years later, she took the controls herself to become the first woman to fly unaccompanied and tried to circle the globe. During this attempt her life was tragically cut short when she mysteriously disappeared over the South Pacific.
The film is being shown as part of the National Women in Engineering Day celebrations which take place on the 23rd June.
The National Women in Engineering day is dedicated to raising the profile and celebrates the achievements of women in engineering.
