Amelia Earhart Looking out from Aircraft

Original caption: Amelia Earhart and "Flying Laboratory." The trim, low-wing transport plane purchased by the Amelia Earhart Fund for Aeronautical Research as a "Flying Laboratory," is a twin-engine Lockheed Electra. It is powered with the Pratt-Whitney Wasp S3HI engines of 550 H.P., each driving Hamilton constant speed metal propellers. The plane will carry, instead of passenger seats, additional fuel tanks for extended non stop flights by America's "First Lady of the Air." Miss Earhart, shown here in the new plane, and her husband George Palmer Putnam, are in Los Angeles to watch completion of the plane, which will delivered about July 1. She will use Union Air terminal, Burbank, California, as a base.
