It’s too bad that the romance and fearless adventure inherent in the word “aviatrix” seems to have disappeared from the language along with the word.

Upside down? Who's ever heard of that?! No wonder she's dead!
Love the dress in the video.
Wish they'd bring back the 40’s dresses - when they fit a woman's body and the fabric was cut so as to drape/fall beautifully.

Have you heard about this lady?
Hope the weather’s more level there than it is here. Stay safe.
