In the early 1930s, the Lockheed Vega became a true star of long range record flights and was also used in fast passenger and goods transport. The Vega was the type that successfully circumnavigated the globe and made its mark in the world of women’s records. Several women pilots flew the Vega, the most famous of whom arguably was Amelia Earhart, who became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic. Her red Vega with golden trims served her well also in coast to coast transcontinental crossing of the USA. The machine is now put on display in the Smithsonian Institute.
