This is Katherine Sui Fun Cheung (1904-2003), the first female Asian American aviator. She earned her pilot’s license in 1932, and became a barnstormer who performed acrobatic mid-air stunts at fairs and festivals. She was a member of Amelia Earhart’s prestigious international club of women aviators, the Ninety Nines Club. She was a friend of Anna May Wong, who more than once helped her raise money to buy planes. “I thought it’d be fun to fly so I did it,” she recalled many years later. “There’s no feeling like it in the world. Being up in the air, the wind blowing, the exhilaration…that’s my definition of joy. It’s complete freedom. You haven’t lived until you’ve truly felt that.”
