September 26, 2017 -- Amelia Earhart in Cuba, Missouri
Another of the original 12 Murals in Cuba, Missouri, painted on the side of Ryle’s Carwash along old U.S. 66 in Cuba. This mural commemorates a fleeting moment in Cuba history, an emergency landing by Amelia Earhart near Cuba, Missouri on September 4, 1928. She had left Scott Field near Belleville, Illinois in her Avro plane, with a destination of Muskogee, Oklahoma in route to Los Angeles. It was a short-lived visit as the plane wasn't damaged and she was able to continue on her trip.
