Denise Moore was the first female aviator to die in an aircraft accident. She had been taking flying lessons at the Henri Farman Aviation School at Étampes, about 30 miles south of Paris in France.
She took off at 18:20 in Farman’s biplane, on her third flight of the day, and made two circuits of the field. On her third turn, the aircraft banked steeply and pitched downward. It crashed and Ms. Moore was killed.
