The great French writer Antoine de Saint-exupéry was known for not only their works but also because he was a first class pilot. In September 1939, when it became known about the beginning of the war in Germany and France, a celebrity himself arrived at the military airfield and later was transferred to the long-range reconnaissance unit. Not helped even the entreaties of friends, who insisted that Antoine will bring the country more good as a journalist and a writer than as a pilot.

Five years later, in 1944, he wrote to friends that he could not do otherwise, and is not going to leave to fight. Odno, the celebrity said they were waiting for the end of the war, because he had “something to do and after it”. Alas, in the same 1944 he went to his last flight.

In July 1937, the pilot took off from the town of Lae in New Guinea and in 18 hours had to land on a small island in the Pacific ocean that, according to the standards of the time, it was quite a challenge.

On the island Earhart was already waiting for the officials and the press, but her plane never showed up. Judging by the radio signals, their levels and relationship with Amelia, her plane was supposed to appear over the island, however, was not seen and heard no sign.
