Elly Beinhorn with her plane, 1932. Creator: Unknown

Elly Beinhorn with her plane, 1932. Beinhorn (1907-2007) was one of Germany's most distinguished female aviators. In 1931 she crash-landed in the Sahara on the way to Portuguese Guinea (now Guinea-Bissau). She joined a Tuareg camel caravan to Timbuktu and later returned to the crash site to recover parts of the plane. Flying a Klemm monoplane, she flew to Mount Everest, Bali and eventually Australia. She was the second woman to fly solo from Europe to Australia, after Amy Johnson. From "Die Eroberung Der Luft", (The Conquest of the Air), cigarette card album produced by the Garbáty cigarette factory, 1932. Eugene and Moritz Garbáty, who were Jewish, were driven out of business by the Nazis in the late 1930s, and forced to sell their factory which lay empty for over 70 years.
