The family of Elinor Smith says she died Friday March 19, 2010 in a nursing home in Palo Alto. She was 98. Family members say Smith was considered one of the youngest and most daring pilots in the 1920s when she set a number of flying records. Smith became an instant celebrity at the age of 17 when she flew under all four of New York's East River suspension bridges. (AP Photo, File)

    This event sounds awesome! I’m happy to see that you are getting support from outside the aviation community. I think this is a great way to introduce women to aviation. I hope it encourages everyone to reach for the stars. Good luck with your event.

    1. Thanks much! We are getting an overwhelming response, not only from the tri-state area!
      Looks like the weather will cooperate too. Will have to stay glued to Mr. G’s reports!
