Kelly Jeffries (New Hampshire)

Here’s an update from Kelly Jeffries who is based at NH69, Windsock Village Airport  in West Ossipee, NH.  Thanks, Kelly, for sending in this incredible pic!  What a blast for both you gals and your husband – and how cool to see your very own RV right there beside you!

“Here’s a picture that was taken in 2006 at Sun-n-Fun.  My husband is flying my RV but I’m flying co-pilot in the DC3, the Captain was Sheila Mabbitt.”

From Kelly; “I live in the best airpark in NH and fly a beautiful RV-8 that my husband built.  I fly big airplanes for work (767 American Airlines) but my love is my RV.  My tailwheel experience includes a few hours in a Stearman and various hours in Super Cubs”.

“This picture is me and my dear friend, Lisa.  Lisa was one of my flight attendants who unfortunately, lost the battle with cancer over two years ago.  Though not a pilot, she loved flying and it was very special to be able to take her places.”

I have Fifinella on my airplane as a tribute to the WASP.  Many ask me about Fifi and it’s great to be able to tell people about the WASP and their contribution to our country.

    Hey I have Fifinella on my flight suit!! The day i soloed the Tiger Moth i wore my WASPs T shirt under my flight suit, along with my Snoopy undies- that dog was one of the most influential people in my childhood! I always wanted to be as cool a pilot as him and a tiny fraction as amazing as the WASPs.
