Clara Adams (1884 – 1971) was an aviator who set a variety of flying records. She's remembered primarily as the first woman to fly across the Atlantic as a ticketed passenger aboard the Graf Zeppelin on its return flight from New York in October 1928. Grace Marguerite Hay Drummond-Hay was the first woman to fly across the Atlantic, on the outbound flight of the same journey, as a journalis. Adams also was the first woman to fly aboard the Dornier DO-X and she was one of 11 women aboard the maiden flight of the Hindenburg. Despite the end of public interest of airships due to the Hindenburg disaster, Adams was still eager to fly on airships.
