Original wing fabric swatch, 2 x 2, excised from Amelia Earhart’s Lockheed Vega 5B. The red swatch is affixed to a 15 x 20 piece of textured cover stock paper with an 8 x 10 photo print of Earhart standing alongside the plane. Printed beneath the original fabric is a description of her flights and records set in this aircraft. The description reads in full: “This Lockheed Vega 5B was the aircraft used by Amelia Earhart when she became the first woman to make a nonstop solo flight across the Atlantic, May 20–21, 1932. Miss Earhart made the 3260 kilometer (2026 mile) flight from Harbor Grace, Newfoundland to Culmore, Londonderry, Northern Ireland in 14 hours 54 minutes. On August 24-25, 1932, in the same Vega, Miss Earhart flew from Los Angeles, California to Newark, New Jersey covering the 3940 kilometers (2448 miles) in 19 hours 5 minutes. This was the first solo nonstop transcontinental flight by a woman. The Lockheed Vega is now a part of the collection of the National Air and Space Museum.” Despite several fine cracks, superficial chipping, and peripheral toning, the fabric has retained its bright color and shape. Some original fabric from Earhart’s Lockheed Vega 5B was replaced and sold by the National Air and Space Museum when the aircraft was readied for display to the public. RRAuction COA.
