Magnificent Women and Flying Machines: The First 200 Years of British Women in the Sky



Just eighteen months after two Frenchmen made the world's first ever flight, a fearless British woman hopped into a flimsy balloon and flew across the London sky for nearly an hour.

Since then, many other remarkable British women have decided to defy traditional society and follow their dreams to get into the sky.

For the first time, Magnificent Women and Flying Machines tells the stories of the pioneers who achieved real firsts in various forms of aviation: in ballooning, parachuting, gliding, airships and fixed-wing flight - right up to a trip to the International Space Station! Full of entertaining adventure mixed with a wealth of new information, here at last is a proper record of Britain's wonderful women of the air.
