Elinor Smith was six when she 1st went for a ride in a rickety “ flying machine,” and she was just sixteen when she  earned her aviation license  in 1928.   But not everyone believed that girls should fly. Gorgeous sweeping illustrations by Franç ois Roca show how Elinor pulled off this risky feat skillfully and with style. When male pilots and newspapermen mocked her, Elinor decided to execute an aerial maneuver they thought was impossible: flying below all 4 bridges that span New York City's East River.
