"MORE THAN A WITTY MEMOIR by the first woman pilot at a macho cargo airline and her adventures flying around the world, this is an excruciatingly honest yet compelling account of one woman’s ascent to 747 pilot, the price exacted for the privilege, her devastating fall from grace, and gutsy journey back into the skies."

NORAH O'NEILL was the first woman airline pilot to land in Korea, Japan, the Philippines, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia and Hong Kong. In her book, Flying Tigress, she exposes what really happened when women first dared to cross the airline cockpit threshold.
