Google is now renowned for using its logo as a canvas to honour the stalwarts of the past in the form of a Google Doodle. Today’s Google Doodle celebrates the birth of a pioneering aviatrix, the famed Amelia Earhart. The Google Doodle is a beautiful illustration of Amelia Earhart posing on an airplane that resembles the iconic Lockheed Vega B5 that she flew across the Atlantic. The underside of the wings includes the letters of the search engine ‘Google’ while the front propeller and the scarf of Amelia Earhart form the two ‘Os’ of the word ‘Google’. The illustration has been beautifully done; it exudes an air of bravado and adventure as we see Amelia Earhart facing a gust of wind from an undiscovered land and looking towards a distant vanishing point.
Amelia Earhart was born on this day in the year 1897. Her love affair with aircrafts started at a young age and she took lessons to become a pilot very early on. It didn’t take too long for Amelia Earhart to create waves in the field of aviation. She flew her Airstar at an altitude of 14,000 feet on 22nd October 1922 and made a World Record. After this feat, she went on to fly solo across the Atlantic and become the first woman in the world to achieve this milestone. She received the ‘Distinguished Flying Cross’ from Congress and the ‘Gold Medal of the National Society’ from Herbert Hoover, the erstwhile President of America. Google adds another laurel to this famous pilot by making a fantastic Google Doodle for her.
