The film below is too fun to not share.  It’s from the 1920’s of Gladys Ingles who was a female aircraft mechanic and a member of a company of stunt pilots called the 13 Black Cats. In this film a biplane has lost a wheel so it can’t land.  Gladys flies up in another biplane, climbs from one plane to the other and puts on a new wheel.

It’s hard to believe this event was captured on film and saved all these years.  It’s a little grainy, but it shows Gladys remarkable courage and daring.

How would our lives be different if we had that much courage?  What risks would you be willing to take to that would lead to a happier more fulfilling life?
