Oops, I saw the big wheeler airplane. She's going on a long trip. In a open field in Tennessee. It must be winter in 1947. It must be cold because they are all wrapped up but can't be too cold they have sweaters on. She thinks she is experienced. She thinks she is flying the plane and practicing. She knows what she is doing. She's definitely flying an airplane by the looks of the machine, because she wants to go someplace. She's headed upside down - well that would be the wrong thing to do. She's headed to a warm climate, maybe Florida...California. Maybe New York, no..it's not warm there, Arizona or Mexico. Her name is Blanche Peggy Sue. Maybe 19 or 24. Will she get there? She looks sturdy and determined. She must be taking something to someone. Look at the grounds, there are cows. What will she do? She may have family there. She will have to take off some clothes. She will have delivered a package. There is no one else with her. You here the sounds of an airplane.
