It was one of the bi-planes with two wings. We’re at the airport or in the field testing the plane to see what it’s going to do and how far this plane could fly.
"It’s a beautiful pilot," Frank says.
It would be interesting if it were a man. Blanche Scott is the pilot. She’s extremely focused and the steering wheel looks like something you use on a ship.
“She’s got guts!” Stan says.
She’s going to the coast and it’s hard to know, but she’s dressed for cold weather because she has a collar and gloves and special things on her legs. "It’s what’s in your mind when you see the person," Lillian says.
"I think Amelia Earhart would be there to help her," Nora says, but Stan says that Amelia would not help her because she crashed.
"She’s the only person who flew non-stop. She’s a historian because she’s the only woman who ever did what she did!" Nora says.
She’s involved in a test to see if she can arrive at a place. A luxury. She’s going to crash because she ran out of gas. BOOM! Smells like gasoline burning. It was a mystery, an investigation after and they never could solve it. Newspapers ran it for weeks and weeks. She was aiming for Easter Island and she was the only woman to ever do it.
