Ljuba Galantchikova had a short movie (cinema) career under the name of Millie Moore before becoming a pilot. Her nickname was Pushka. She learned to fly from Leon Letort, a Frenchman, probably at Gashinka (St. Petersburg) and she earned Russian licence number 56 on 19 November 1911. She later flew in a Morane with him from Johannisthal (Berlin) to Paris, while Letort was returning to Paris after his non-stop-flight from Paris to Johannisthal.
She met Anthony Fokker in 1912 at the Johannisthal-Berlin Airfield and they became friends. She challenged the altitude record of Melli Beese, and then reached an altitude of 2,200 meters in a Fokker with a 100 horsepower motor (also carrying a passenger, whose name is not known). She ended up working at the Terenchenko factory, where she received an aircraft. In 1917, she also joined the Imperial Air Force, serving in the 26th Corps Reconnaissance Squadron, where she flew as an observer.
After the war, she became a taxi driver in New York City.
