Nancy Marie Payne, Storyteller at Gilboa Museum & Juried History Center

Written By Editor on 10/17/21 | 10/17/21

Women who took up flying in the early 1900s had to handle prejudice as well as their aircraft. Public sentiment in the early days of flying held that when a man died in an aircraft accident it was a shame—but he knew what he was getting into and was a hero for breaking new ground.
....When a woman died in a plane accident, it was proof positive she shouldn't have been flying in the first place.

Storyteller Nancy Marie Payne brings this exciting time alive through the voice of Pancho Barnes, a colorful and innovative female pilot of the 1920's. Nancy, as Pancho, relates the story of first flight from a woman's perspective. “Pancho” tells her own colorful story as well as the exploits of early balloonists and aviators, including Ruth Law, Harriet Quimby, Bessie Colman, Bobbi Trout, Amelia Earhart and others.
