Monday, August 1 marks the centennial of the first American woman to earn a pilot's license. Harriet Quimby earned the distinction in 1911 and was also the first woman to solo the English Channel. Quimby's aviation career ended in tragedy when she was thrown from her plane while performing in an air show in Boston. In honor of Quimby's accomplishments, KING 5's Christie Johnson took a flying lesson of her own.
