This mural chronicle a Sept 4, 1928 account in the Muskogee Times-Democrat. Amelia Earhart left Scott Field in Belleville, Illinois in her Avro plane, with a destination of Muskogee, in route to Los Angeles. She later forced down outside of Cuba. No damage was reported, and she continued her journey. Thus, the destiny of the first woman to fly across the Atlantic and the small town of Cuba, Missouri crossed.
