Original caption: J.G. Montijo, airmail pilot between Pueblo, Colorado, and El Paso, Texas, who taught Amelia Earhart Putnam how to fly at Kinner, California, in 1922. She had saved enough to buy a small plane, but had to walk six miles to and from the airport. After seven one-hour lessons, she flew solo. He says she was an excellent student.
