I’m so happy to be able to offer this rppc, identified in the plate as Ruth Law flying over Hornell 11-1946. Signed by W.H. Pennoyer. A bit of history on Ms Law: she was an aviatrix as early as 1912, tried to enlist in combat missions in the US Army during WWI. She was refused, she was an early author on the flying abilities of women and later a pilot recruiter for the Air Corps. She ran her own barnstorming trick shows, and became the first woman to ever do a loop in 1915. And in November of 1916, she broke a record for longest continual continent flight (no stops) with 511 miles from Chicago to New York in 8 + hours. This rppc is likely at the very end of her record breaking journey to Hornell New York, in a Curtiss Pusher. Beautiful image, identifed in white on electric pole. Ever so slight crease to top right, thumb impression/crease under that. They do not affect display, simply wish to be over critical of such a nice card.
