Melitta Schiller, Gräfin (Countess) von Stauffenberg


The Falke Eins blog has a brief entry on Nazi Germany’s OTHER female test pilot. She survived having Jewish blood, marrying into the von Stauffenberg family and extensive wartime test flying, especially of dive bombers, until a P-51 got her in April 1945. Or did it?

She certainly deserves a book-length English-language biography.
