The Great State of Maine Air Show 1997
The Great State of Maine Air Show 1997 was held on July 19 & 20 at
Brunswick Naval Air Station, Brunswick, Maine. It was a great day for an air show,
with blue skies and plenty of warm sunshine... and what's more the Blue Angels were in town!

Flight of Passage
They decided to fix up the family Cub, and then fly it from their home in New Jersey all the way to Los Angeles, California. This was quite a challenge given that the Cub could not fly very fast or high, had no radio, lights, or heat, and could hold virtually no luggage in its tiny two-place cockpit!

Women in Aviation
" Having experienced this attack first-hand, Cornelia was anxious to serve her
country. There were no opportunities for women as military pilots, but programs were
soon established to enlist women in auxiliary roles, mainly ferrying aircraft between
factories and military bases, freeing more male pilots for combat duties. "
