Video ~ Gladys Ingle Changes Planes in Mid-Air

In most barnstorming shows, men piloted the planes. When women participated, they usually performed stunts such as wing walking. Gladys Ingle, a plane transfer specialist,  was famous for shooting arrows at a target while standing on the top wing of a Curtiss Jenny and for changing planes in mid air. This film was obviously shot during a staged event, but is great nonetheless.
