Before Amelia Earhart, there was Sophie Blanchard, the first woman to earn her living in the air. As the first woman to be a professional aeronaut, Blanchard made nearly 70 spectacular flights, survived a revolution, and became a court favorite of the emperor Napoleon, before a terrified crowd of thousands looked on as she met her end in a tragic blaze of glory over the streets of Paris in 1819.
