Opening July 10, “Chasing Horizons: Women in Aerospace” is a new exhibit produced by The Museum of Flight in Seattle that portrays the history of women in the aerospace industry.
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 of the 1920s and 1930s, World War II, and to today’s fighter pilots, aerobatic pilots, engineers, and astronauts. Chasing Horizons will feature artifacts, including uniforms from women in industrial, military, commercial, and sport aviation. The exhibit also offers historical images and videos, and interactive activities.
