Pancho: The Biography of Florence Lowe Barnes
Pancho Barnes was one of aviation's most colorful members. In the 1920s, she barnstormed her way through the skies to become one of the best, capturing the women's speed record in 1930. The test pilots of Edwards AFB designated Pancho's Happy Bottom Riding Club their unofficial debriefing room in the 1950s. Pancho was spontaneous, adventurous, and dedicated to both flying and friends. This well-written biography details the life of a remarkable woman.
