Seattle's Museum of Flight opens the "Chasing Horizons: Women in Aerospace"'s exhibit
The Museum of Flight located on the Boeing Field in Seattle opens a new exhibit: Chasing Horizons–an exhibit about the history of women in the aerospace industry–as part of the Museum’s continuing efforts to feature those who have made contributions to the field of aviation. The story begins with the pioneer French aeronaut Élisabeth Thible, who became the first woman to fly in a balloon in 1784, and it continues through aviation’s Golden Age, World War II and other international conflicts, to contemporary female fighter pilots, aerobats, engineers, and astronauts.
Chasing Horizons will feature artifacts, including uniforms, from women in industrial, military, commercial, and sport aviation, as well as images, videos, and interactive activities.
