Amelia Earhart once said "I chose to fly the Atlantic because I wanted to." It's a great quote, and this online exhibit provides some marvelous images of this most celebrated aviatrix. Created by the National Portrait Gallery to complement an in-situ exhibit, the site includes 12 images, including a drawing by Hugo Gellert and a photograph of Earhart's pilot's license from 1923. The real finds here are the five videos of Earhart out and about at various events and in her plane. Users should not miss the "Amelia Earhart Flies Autogiro" clip or her appearance at the National Flag Association meeting in 1932. The site also features a place where visitors can leave their own comments for consideration by others.
