Naturally Flight recorded the event in its 27 May 1932 issue: "The first time in the History of Aeronautics the Atlantic has been conquered by a woman pilot, flying solo. This feat has been accomplished by Mrs. G. P. Putnam--or, as she is better known, Miss Amelia Earhart--who in 1928 flew as passenger from Newfoundland to South Wales in the Fokker seaplane Friendship, piloted by Wilmer Stultz.
"Miss Earhart--who has been nicknamed " Lady Lindy " on account of her likeness to Col. Charles Lindbergh, who made the first solo Atlantic flight exactly five years previous to her present feat--has also accomplished the crossing in the fastest time so far achieved."
