My God! it's a Woman
Bird, Nancy,
ISBN: 9780732273705
Harper Collins Publishers (Australia) Pty Ltd, Sydney, 2002. First Edition
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. First Edition. First impression. Size: Octavo 8vo (standard book size). 216 pages.

This BOOK IS IN STOCK and READY TO MAIL NOW. Your book when ordered will be securely packed and promptly dispatched by Great Southern Books. Nancy Bird's training began in 1933, at the age of seventeen, in Sydney, where she was one of Charles Kingsford Smith's first pupils. Despite many obstacles - including being too small to reach an aeroplane's controls without the aid of cushions - Nancy was determined to fly, and in 1935, she became the youngest Australian woman to get a commercial pilot's licence. MY GOD! IT'S A WOMAN spans Nancy's flying experiences in the Outback, her travels in Europe and the USA, her association with famous aviators such as Jean Batten and Amy Johnson, and her flying comeback in the 1950s. In 1966, Nancy was awarded the Order of the British Empire in recognition of her support of charities, and in 1990 her significant contribution to aviation and her courageous work in the Outback was recognised with an Order of Australia. Qantas named its first A380 jet in her honour, in 2008. Her biography is a fascinating glimpse of a determined, courageous and glamorous aviatrix. Quantity Available: 1.

The Sky is Not the Limit: The Life of Australia's Top Gun
Hall, Matt; Lyall, David,
ISBN: 9780733329562
ABC Books,  2013. First Edition
 Softcover Softcover. As New/. First Edition. First impression. Size: Octavo 8vo (standard book size). 307 pages. This BOOK IS IN STOCK and READY TO MAIL NOW. Your book when ordered will be securely packed and promptly dispatched by Great Southern Books. The action-packed true story of Australia's very own top gun pilot, Matt Hall. "I would sit there at the controls and think: I'm going to go left, and I can. I want to go right, and I will. I don't have to follow the road. I don't have to follow rules. I don't have to ask anyone - I can go left when I want, I can go right when I want. I had discovered the freedom that has kept me flying to this day." Since he was old enough to notice planes, Matt Hall wanted to be a pilot. Flying with his Dad in a glider, making models at home and meeting officers from the Air Force fuelled his ambition. So when he was accepted into the RAAF's grueling training school it seemed a dream come true. But dreams take hard work and focus - and the willingness to make your own luck. From the rigours of his first professional job as a top Gun fighter in the Battle of Baghdad where he experienced extreme fear and loss for the first time, to his post Air Force career as a professional racer where he has survived near fatal situations to become one of the most renowned pilots in the world, Matt Hall has led an extraordinary life. His story is a rare glimpse into a normally closed world where skill, quick thinking and a cool head can mean the difference between life and death. Quantity Available: 1.
