Amelia Earhart memorial, Burry Port harbour
Commemorating the first woman to cross the Atlantic by air. In June 1928 the seaplane "Friendship", flown from Newfoundland, touched down in the Burry Inlet. It was towed into Burry Port harbour, where the two male pilots and Ms Earhart came ashore to much celebration. Amelia Earhart (born Kansas 1897) went on to achieve great success as an aviator, sadly being lost over the Pacific during an attempt to fly around the world in 1937.
