Amelia Earhart and the "Friendship" Crew at Burry Port after the Transatlantic Flight, June 18, 1928

Summary

Amelia Earhart and her Friendship crewmates, Wilmer Stultz and Louis Gordon, had intended to fly from Newfoundland to Southampton, England. Instead they landed off of Burry Port, Wales. It did not matter. When the trio came ashore, some 2,000 people -- nearly the entire population of Burry Port -- came out to see the woman who had conquered the Atlantic Ocean.
