Description


Original wing fabric swatch, 2 x 2, excised from Amelia Earhart's Lockheed Vega 5B. The dark red swatch is affixed to a 15 x 20 piece of textured cover stock paper with a 10 x 8 photo of Earhart standing alongside the plane. Printed beneath the original fabric is a description of her flights and records set in this aircraft. Irregular toning to lower right portion, otherwise fine condition. This historic fabric was part of the first solo nonstop across the Atlantic by a female pilot. Some original fabric from Earhart's Lockheed Vega 5B was replaced and sold by the National Air and Space Museum when the aircraft was readied for display to the public.
