    The soviet air force allowed women in combat roles during the last world war. Two of them achieved Ace status.

    Lidia Litvak and Katya Budonova. Both of whom are credited with more than 11 combat kills, plus assists.

    However, neither of them survived the war.

    While flying upside down in a dog fight, they must have had a nasty crack up...
