Reclaiming women pilots history. The Breaking Through The Clouds documentary tells the story of the first U.S. women derby
In an effort to reclaim women pilots' history, Heather Taylor has researched and produced a documentary to tell the story of the first women pilots to participate in the first U.S. female national derby in 1929.
Twenty young women eagerly signed on for the air race. These pilots pushed themselves, the planes and each other to the limits as well as changed the public's perception of flying and challenged society's image of women.
