Although Amelia Earhart was already planning her solo Atlantic crossing when this issue of Vanity Fair was published, she was not vocal about her plans. She appears here surrounded by other record-breaking female flyers, including Elinor Smith, Louise Thaden, Ruth Nichols, and Florence Lowe Barnes. Unlike these other women, Earhart was in possession of an adoring full-time publicist who was dedicated to marketing her image to the public: her husband.
