Original caption: Amelia Earhart is shown here as she inflated the tiny rubber life raft that was part of the equipment of her "flying laboratory," during preparation for her round the world flight. With the plane downed somewhere in the Pacific, probably adjacent to Howland Island, this raft may have meant the difference between life and death for the aviatrix and her navigator, Fred Noonan.
