Deals On Flights To Hawaii
Amelia Earhart and George Putnam
Amelia Earhart was already an accomplished pilot when she met George Putnam, having accumulated over 500 hours of solo flight time. He interviewed her for a transatlantic flight on which she was a passenger, four years before her famous 1932 solo flight across the Atlantic. George was a famous New York publicist and explorer, and the two had many interests in common. They hiked, camped, rode horses, and played golf and tennis together.
George had to propose to Amelia six times before she accepted. After a good deal of hesitation, Amelia and George were married in early 1931. Amelia wrote of their relationship, “[o]urs is a reasonable and contented partnership; my husband with his solo jobs, and I with mine; but the system of dual control works satisfactorily and our work and our play is a great deal together.”
Amelia continued her aviation career after marriage under her maiden name, and George organized her appearances and publicity to fund her flights. She promoted flight lage and sports clothes, and George published two of her books, The Fun of It and Last Flight.
Amelia disappeared during an around-the-world flight in 1937. While flying on one of the final segments of her globe-spanning journey, radio controllers lost contact with Amelia's plane. She was low on fuel, flying low and searching for a place to land in the Pacific ocean, midway between Hawaii and Australia. Despite an extensive and expensive naval search, no evidence of Amelia or her plane was found. Two years later, George had her declared dead and published her biography, Soaring Wings.
Here's Where We Would Go
Our plan for our first day was a helicopter tour that would take us over Volcanoes National Park, and then we'd fly to a "secluded" valley and land for a bit. We were on the 7:30 tour which meant we needed to be at the Kona airport at 6:45--not that big a deal since we'd been getting up early for most of the vacation. After checking in (and weighing in) and going through a safety briefing, we waited outside for our pilot. A short time later Jessie (our pilot) came out to tell us that they were looking at the weather reports and it was looking like there was too much cloud cover. He used a map to explain where we would go and to show where the clouds were that were blocking our view. He wanted to delay the flight by 30 minutes so he could hear back from another pilot that was flying over the volcano and check the weather reports that would be more clean when the sun was higher. It turned out the trip was not to be--he said he didn't want us to get a tour of the different kinds of cloud Hawaii has to offer.
Fortunately it was our first day and we had time to reschedule (we ended up going on our last full day).
Fortunately we had some flexibility in our schedule, so we decided to visit Kailua and do the coffee plantations this day instead.
