Therese Peltier Descends

January 4, 1910 Therese Peltier, the first woman to pilot an airplane, gave up aviation when her flight instructor, Leon Delagrange, was killed in a flying accident. On September 27, 1908, an Italian magazine had reported that Peltier flew 200 meters at a height of 2.5 meters, across Military Square in Milan.
