"The World Beneath Their Wings, A New Millennium of Female Aviators" by Julie Jervis

Julie Jervis is a science and technology writer living in Silicon Valley, California. Educated in England, she has worked at the World Health Organization, the International Maritime Satellite Organization, and more recently for NASA Ames Research Center. Her work as a technology journalist has appeared in publications around the world.

Each of the 15 chapters chronicles the lives and careers of some of the world's leading female aviators. Each true story offers fascinating insight into their dreams, challenges and victories, as their unwavering passion for flight lifted them to the top of their profession.

The World Beneath Their Wings tells what it's like to retrieve a satellite in space; to rescue fisherman from a burning boat in the Bering Straits; to fly a B-1 bomber over Kabul in support of U.S. ground troops; to wrestle the mistral winds in a blimp over the South of France.
