In the spring of 1928, in the wake of Lindbergh's first trans-Atlantic flight, Earhart was offered the offered the chance of being the first woman to cross the Atlantic. On June 17, 1928 she and fellow pilots Wilmer Stultz and Lou Gordon - the "Friendship Fliers" - departed Trepassey, Newfoundland and crossed the Atlantic landing in Burry Point, Wales. Though she never actually was given the opportunity to do any of the flying, the event catapulted her to international attention.

    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.
