Dealer Notes
“In 1932, when she paid for her first flying lesson, a beauty parlour girl ceased to exist and an aviator was born. Since then she has achieved such distinctions as being the first woman to fly a military plane, the first woman to break the sound barrier, the first woman to make a totally blind landing.” (Back wrapper). Cochran’s own account of her rise and rise.
