Read the story, Officer Cadet with Liverpool University Air Squadron...

Hanna Reitsch of Germany deserves to be remembered as a pioneer in aviation, and a top notch test pilot. She flew most of Germanys experimental, highly advanced aircraft. She tested the Me-323 Komet, Me-262 jet fighter, the Gotha-229 "Flying Wing" slealth fighter, the V-1 missile, first helicopters. Had she flown combat, would probably given Luftwaffe Aces a run for top gun.
