Helen Richey was Amelia Earhart's copilot on one flight across the Atlantic. She became the first woman hired to be a pilot by a commercial airline in the US. She was the first woman licensed as an aviation instructor. She was the first woman to fly a scheduled mail flight. During WWII she commanded a group of women pilots for the British Air Transport Auxiliary, flying bombs between factories and airbases. She died by suicide at age 38
I write horror. I love horror, movies, comics and novels. I mainly write comics but also films, novels and video-games. My first love is punk. I'm all about DIY and creator-owned. It is time for a revolution. None of the images I post are mine, unless...
I find early colour photographs, like this striking image of a woman sewing an American flag, to be so powerfully intriguing (it is as though the colour ads an even greater sense of relate-ability and depth to them). #Edwardian #color #1910s #Victorian #photograph #antique #vintage #woman
"All my son wanted , was to see the world". Keith Sapsford, 14, Australian, hid in the wheel housing of a Japan Air Lines Tokyo-bound jet in Sydney. John Gilspin, an amateur photographer, was testing his new camera lens as the plane took off and unwittingly caught Keith Sapsford's 200-foot plunge to death. 1970. Snopes had nothing on this.
