Jacqueline Cochran was orphaned in infancy and later lived with a poor family that traveled to sawmill towns in search of jobs. She became a reporter, owned a cosmetics firm and worked as a test pilot. She was the first woman to break the sound barrier, the first woman to fly a bomber across the Atlantic, the first civilian woman to win a Distinguished Service Medal and was elected to the Aviation Hall of Fame in 1992. At her death in 1980, she held more speed, altitude and distance records than any other pilot.
