from CBC News
Nearly 69 years after she first took flight, Newfoundland and Labrador's first female pilot is looking back on her accomplishments. Phyllis Penney-Gaul — who is now 90 and living in British Columbia — broke the aviation gender barrier when she flew alone for the first time in Gander on July 15, 1947. A display featuring her accomplishments is currently being featured at the North Atlantic Aviation Museum in Gander.
