@cinephile ,

My father worked for a regional airline that had a fleet of DC-3s and Convair 480s & 580s. I spent a lot of time on DC-3s when I was young. My family flew a few times per year on standby during the 1960s.

Carole Lombard is considered the first woman to be killed during WWII.

First American woman, perhaps.

I modified that line. My source said "first woman". However, as you mentioned, certainly other women died before her. Even if I counted only American women, it is said that over 250 women have perished at Pearl Harbor.
