Written on Hotel Sinton letterhead, a thank you letter from Earhart to the "Baker of the Cake."

Beside the salutation at the top has been written in pencil, "J. Fesch's". Later this year, Earhart would go on to participate in the August Women's Air Derby (the "Powder Puff Derby") and become a founding member of the Ninety-Nines, an international organization of licensed female pilots.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
