Harriet Quimby

This is a nice photograph of Harriet Quimby taken in 1911. She was the first woman to receive a pilots license in the United States. This photograph was taken shortly after she became the first woman in the United States to receive a pilots license. In 1912 she became the first woman to fly over the English Channel. Unfortunately, she died in a plane wreck a short time later. Today we take out hats off to another pioneering woman.
