Tiny Broadwick was an exhibition jumper who traveled with air shows making more than 1,000 jumps between 1908 and 1922.
Tiny made her first jump at age 15 in 1908 at the North Carolina State Fair in Raleigh. She was the first woman to jump from an airplane, the first person to jump from a floatplane, the first person to make an intentional water jump and was the first person to open a parachute manually.
A tribute to a fascinating parachuting pioneer.
