March 8, 2012

In celebration of International Women's Day for 2012 I'd like to highlight the amazing short but inspiring aviation career of Maude (Lores) Bonney (1897-1994), one of Australia's pioneers. Lores’ passion for flying began after a flight in 1928 with aviation legend, Bert Hinkler, her husband's cousin.
