Ninety years ago this August, 20 women pilots flew from Santa Monica to Ohio in nine days. It was the first all women's national air race. It was a dangerous feat, and one woman didn't survive. Earlier this month, 13 women and one man raced from Santa Monica to San Bernardino to commemorate that first race.
