Hanna Reitsch

“We’ll say you are the American cousin of Hanna Reitsch. You know of Hanna Reitsch? Germany’s most daring test pilot is a woman!” – Lt Karl Womelsdorff

This mini documentary gives a nice overview of Hanna’s career and (in my opinion) utter insanity. At one point of this video it talks about how she proposed manning V-1 flying bombs as suicide planes – somehow I suspect this would have probably not impressed Rose very much.
