1928 - By the time he was merely 2 years old, aviatrix Amelia Earhart, age 31, became the first woman to fly solo across North America and back in August.

He was a powerful and controversial figure in Louisiana politics (and probably gained power through multiple criminal acts).

1967 - When he was 41 years old, between June 5th and 10th, Israeli and Egypt, Jordan, and Syria fought what came to be called the "Six-Day War".

It ended with Israel occupying the Sinai Peninsula, Golan Heights, Gaza Strip and West Bank.
