Some images from the recent celebrations to mark the 90th anniversary of Amelia Earhart landing in a farmer’s field in Ballyarnett, Derry in May 1932.

Earhart made aviation history when she arrived in the city becoming the first woman to fly across the Atlantic solo.

A stunning mural by artist Joseph Campbell has been unveiled at the Spar shop in Galliagh beside the new Community Centre, while NWRC students took part in a vintage fashion show at the Guildhall.
