Post In-flight airplane repair
Check out this 1920's video of a plane's wheel being replaced... in mid-air... by an air-to-air transfer... of a female mechanic.

Read the comments. I agree that it was staged, but (a) it was reenacting an actual emergency situation, and (b) there are no special effects. Neither does it look like she is wearing a parachute.

THAT is a Heinlein woman.
