Everyone is famous in some way. I wrote some of the accomplishments of her flying days. I will tell you more but it’s her spirit that makes her so special. She broke the rules that were expected for women. That’s the kind of women that thrills me. Vicky followed her passion now its my turn.

Most of te famous flights in th 30’s were out of Roosevelt Field. It was the most modern field at the time. Mineola became know as the “Hot Bed” of Aviation during the Golden Age of Aviation” during the 30’s. I will tell you more about Roosevelt Field later.
