The Lockheed Vega was first built in 1927. It is a single-engine aircraft with seating for up to 7 passengers. The wings and fuselage were covered with fabric. Originally powered by a 400 hp radial engine; following an accident that required significant repairs, Amelia Earhart had a more powerful engine installed along with greater fuel capacity. Earhart set two world records in the aircraft: the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic from North America to Europe, and the first to fly solo non-stop across the United states from west to east. She referred to her Vega as her “Little Red Bus.” Earhart’s Red Vega is now on display in the Smithsonian Museum.
