Bank Holiday Special: Women in Aviation. To celebrate the fact that Hilda Hewlett became the first British woman to receive a pilot's licence 100 years today, Jenni Murray presents a programme featuring some of the women who have made important contributions to the world of flying over the last century. She is joined by Gail Hewlett - Hilda's biographer - and by Caroline Gough-Cooper [Chairman of the British Women Pilot's Association].
Also on the programme: What happened to Amelia Earhart? Jenni interviews Ric Gillespie - the man who has spent 23 years trying to track down evidence that the world's most famous female flyer died a castaway on a Pacific Island.
Other guests: Astronaut Cady Coleman who returned from a five month tour of duty on the international space station in May and Wing Commander Sara Machmin - a helicopter pilot who is in charge of three search and rescue teams.
