I don’t have many strictly aviation-type songs. But there’s this one.
I give it to you with luv...:

Dear Amelia
Is the joke on the rest of us?
Were you laughing at the instruments
That said that you were
Nowhere at all?

Dear Amelia
Did your Electra let you down
And when all that metal hit
Tell me, did you miss your
Ticker tape parade
And your name in the news

Did you finally find a lover
Who wouldn't sell your name
In a deep blue invitation
Written on the South Pacific waves?

Amelia, Amelia
When the steady glow of the
Dashboard lights
All went black
And you spinning down
So certain so true
Into the deep dark blue

Dear Amelia
I'm writing all this down
Sealed it in a bottle
Sent it on the restless sea
To you
Dear Amelia
You know we landed on the moon
And I will get this message thru
`Cause if this bottle cracks
And breaks
Like a wing
Or a heart
It will go spinning down
So certain so true
Into the deep dark
