A Tribute

This story is not a full-fledged biography, but more of a tribute to this pioneering aviator. It is written by me about her, and is, therefore, a third-person narration. It begins as follows below:

“From any angle you look at it, her life makes a good story. The headline could read Fort Myers Native Subject of Broadway Musical, or Local Girl Mid-Atlantic on 9/11, or Fort Myers Woman First Female Captain for American Airlines. Whichever angle you choose, the story begins with a freckle-faced little girl repeatedly jumping off her mother’s washing machine in the stubborn attempt to fly across the kitchen.”
