Goofs

During the takeoff from Lae, New Guinea, the Electra barely makes it off the runway in time due to its heavy fuel load. Yet right after takeoff, Earhart puts the plane into a near-vertical climb and a sharp turn. In reality, either maneuver would have immediately stalled the aircraft due to its heavy weight, and a crash would have resulted. See more »

7 April 2002 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This movie is a real insult to a brave woman. It is just lies and slander all the way through. I cannot believe it was even made it is so base and false. Amelia was a true heroine and a pioneer who paved the way for other woman pilots. I cannot believe that ridiculous story that she was spying for the government! Amelia and Fred were involved in an aircraft accident, it is that simple. There is a man named Elgin Long who has spent years researching the case and I think he found the answer. Due to a combination of empty fuel tanks, faulty navigation and exhaustion, Amelia's plane went down in the sea about a hundred miles from tiny Howland Island. The impact alone probably killed them both, even if it hadn't the plane would have sunk like a rock within minutes.
