(ABC) – At 86 years old, American Airlines flight attendant Bette
Nash *above) is the oldest and longest-serving flight attendant
in the world, according to Guinness World Records.  

Nash started flying back in 1957 and will celebrate 65 years in-
flight this fall.

She can choose any route she wants and for most of her career
she has been loyal to the New York-Washington-Boston Shuttle.

Nash prefers this route because she says it allows her to be home
every night with her handicapped son who she continues to care
for to this day.

On July 2, 1937, the Lockheed aircraft carrying American aviator
Amelia Earhart and navigator Frederick Noonan was reported
missing near Howland Island in the Pacific.

The pair were attempting to fly around the world when they lost
their bearings during the most challenging leg of the global
journey: Lae, New Guinea, to Howland Island, a tiny island 2,227
nautical miles away, in the center of the Pacific Ocean.

The U.S. Coast Guard cutter Itasca was in sporadic radio contact
with Earhart as she approached Howland Island and received
messages that she was lost and running low on fuel. Soon after,
she probably tried to ditch the Lockheed in the ocean. No trace
of Earhart or Noonan was ever found.
