High Flying Women – Pioneering Aviators
Saturday 1 April to Sunday 24 September 2017
Opening this weekend, Cranwell Aviation Heritage Museum’s latest exhibition – High Flying Women – Pioneering Aviators will open to the public telling the stories of female aviators from around the world. The exhibition will enable visitors to discover these remarkable women and their love of flight, speed, adventure and service for their countries.
Equally important, the exhibition examines their struggles and rebellion against the conventions of their respective times, in order to realise their dreams; and how they fearlessly took to the air when aviation was a far greater risk than it is today. It will also show that wealth or indeed a lack of it was not an inhibitor of their ambitions.
Featured women include:
The exhibition will also highlight the role women played in nursing wounded aircrew, against the conventions of the day.
This exhibition is open to the public from Saturday 1 April to Sunday 24 September 2017. Admission is free.
