The History Of ‘Women In Aviation’ Exhibit Going On Through May 31 In Cheyenne
Aviation has been a fascinating part of history. From now until May 31, 2015, the Laramie County Library with host an exhibit highlighting women in flight. When we think of women in flight, we can't help but think of women like Bessie Coleman, one of the first black women to fly. Of course Amelia Earhart, the former military nurse in World War I, gone aviator. She was known for making a trip across the Atlantic in a solo flight.
Other women aviators who took advantage of the "Let Women Fly" battle cry were: Elizabeth Thible (hot air balloon), Therese Peltier, who was the first woman to fly in a "heavier than air" aircraft and Ruth Law, who flew two loop de loops over Daytona Beach Florida in 1915.
