She Was The First Woman To Perform An Aerobatic Loop In A Plane

Despite being denied to fly in the war, Ruth still did her part in the war effort and flew in exhibitions to raise money for the Red Cross and promote enlistment. She eventually founded Ruth Law’s Flying Circus and brought the show to county fairs and festivals, earning a lot of money to donate.

After the war ended, Ruth continued flying for a while, breaking more high-altitude records and even becoming the first person to deliver mail via the air to the Philippines in 1919. She retired from flying in 1922, most likely due to her husband, Charles Oliver, not being thrilled with all of her dangerous stunts.

Ruth settled in California and passed away in 1970 at 83.

While her flying career may have been cut short, Ruth was an incredibly inspirational woman who paved the way for other women who loved to fly.
