    My God! It's A Woman

    By: Nancy Bird

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    The autobiography of Nancy Bird, one of Australia's early women pilots.

    In 1933, when women were still expected to man the nation's kitchens, nineteen-year-old Nancy Bird obtained her commercial pilot's licence. It was an exciting period in aviation. Long distance flights in single-engined aircraft captured the imagination of people all over the world, aero clubs flourished, and the exploits of legendary figures such as Charles Kingsford Smith, P G Taylor and Charles Ulm filled the newspapers.

    Australian aviation was a fledgling industry, fraught with many difficulties. Mechanical problems, frail aeroplanes made of fabric and wood, dust storms, turbulence, poor aviation maps and sketchy weather reports made long journeys arduous and a test of endurance.

    Nancy Bird shares her memories of these days and her flying contemporaries, spanning her flying experiences in the outback, and her travels in Europe and America. It's a fascinating glimpse of a determined and courageous aviatrix, who has remained an active supporter of aviation throughout the world.
