Pilot, Philanthropist Zoe Dell Nutter Served Aviation For Decades

“Zoe Dell Lantis grabbed the opportunity to work as an exhibition girl at the Golden Gate International Exposition in San Francisco in 1939—which celebrated the opening of the Golden Gate Bridge just six months prior. Lantis was a 20-year-old dancer looking to expand her horizons, and she did just that, joining an aerial promotional tour that would cross the country demonstrating the wonders—and safety and reliability—of commercial air travel. Specifically, Lantis delivered invitations to San Francisco’s “world fair” in United Airlines’ shiny new Douglas DC-3s.

Zoe Dell dressed as a “radiator cap girl” back then, but her love for aviation was true—she ended up learning to fly and devoting her life in service of aviation and other philanthropic causes. Zoe Dell married Ervin J. Nutter in 1965, and for decades the two supported the industry—and they are credited as founding members of the National Aviation Hall of Fame in Dayton, Ohio....”
