Todd biplane: Mammy Cool.

E. Lillian Todd sitting behind the wheel of her brainchild. This turn of the century inventor was the first woman who became an aeronautical engineer (self-taught); so her biplane was accordingly the first one designed by any woman (1909-10).

I’m not trying to be disrespectful with the “Mammy Cool” comment. She looks here as stiff as a poker anyway.
