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)
