Might want to check that answer on the pilot question. Earhart flew transatlantic in 1932, sure, but not around the world, and obviously didn't take off and land in Columbus, OH.

I completely screwed up this question. The answer I wanted was Jerrie Mock in 1964, but that answer has not in the year well. I had an Amelia Earhart question originally (transatlantic in 1932), but I conflated the two and the result is a bad question.

I'll award everyone points for it. Damn, I was doing so well...

Thanks for pointing it out.
