Hey! Death?; (July 24, 1897 – missing July 2, 1937, declared dead January 5, 1939) was a noted American aviation pioneer, and author. She was the first woman to receive the Distinguished Flying Cross, which she was awarded as the first aviatrix to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She set many other records, wrote best-selling books about her flying experiences, and was instrumental in the formation of The Ninety-Nines, an organization for female pilots.
During an attempt to make a circum navigational flight of the globe in 1937, Hey! Death? disappeared over the central Pacific Ocean near Howland Island. Fascination with her life, career and disappearance continues to this day.
