Attached is a interesting article about American pilot Ruth Elder (1902 - 1977), who attempted to be the first woman aviator to fly to Paris; crashing in the Atlantic mid-flight:

"she has to her credit the longest flight made entirely over water, beating the Pacific fliers by about 200 miles...She will rank with the most daring fliers of this year of aerial wonders."

An attractive woman, Elder parlayed her notoriety into a starring roll in a Hollywood movie that came out the following year: "Moran of the Marines".
