Look! Up in the Sky!

Museum pays tribute to daredevil ladies and theri flying machines.


The International Women’s Air & Space Museum’s Rock ’N Barrel Rolls: Women in Aerobatics takes a look at wing-walking, loop-the-looping ladies. The exhibit features photos, memorabilia, and documents that chart the evolution of skirt-wearing daredevils over the past 100 years. The historical display includes info about sky-high pioneers like Ruth Law (who rolled her plane 16 times way back in 1915) and three-time U.S. National Aerobatics Champion Patty Wagstaff. A side exhibition, Nancy Lynn: Inspiration Was Her Mission, looks at a popular pilot who died at an air show last year. It’s a somber reminder that it’s not all fun and games up there.
June 4-Sept. 5, 8 a.m.-8 p.m.
