Jessie Woods, Love Is In The Air

August 28, 1928 Daredevil Jessie Woods eloped with her boyfriend Jimmie. The pair founded the Flying Aces Air Circus, performing until 1938. Jessie flew planes, performing dangerous landings, walked on the wings and parachuted. She was known for dangling by her knees from an airborne ladder.  4th to 6th grade girls can apply for a space camp scholarship in Jessie Wood’s honor, sponsored by the Ninety Nines (contact me if you know a girl who’d like to apply!)
