Lady Taildraggers Fly-Low Magazine Cover


Hey girls, we made the cover of the March 2011 Fly-Low Magazine which is being mailed out this week!!! If you were at our lady taildraggers fly-in last August you’ll remember this fun flight – you may have even been in one of the other 6 or 7 (or was it 8?) taildraggers flying formation that Saturday night.  Me, I’m the one hopping a ride in this beautiful Great Lakes biplane taking the picture of Tina & Steve Thomas’ gorgeous Cabin Waco and Steve Given’s Waco RNF.


In my picture, Susan was flying her Waco RNF just ahead of Steve! Ralph from Fly-Low Magazine tells me the limitation in width wasn’t wide enough to catch the third airplane. Sorry Susan. 🙁

The magazine cover says our story is on page 34 so pick up a Fly-Low Magazine at an airport near you later this week and check it out!!

    Great article, Judy! Thank you so much for starting this site – I never dreamed there were so many wonderful women who also loved taildraggers. And I love the videos!

    Yep, that flight was cool beyond words. The magazine is sending me several copies and I’ll pick some up at the airport too so I’ll be sure to have enough for everyone that wants one. A couple issues ago they had an amazing picture of a red & white Maule on the cover – the picture was shot from the rear with the hills in the background and was the entire cover, which is sizable! (they’re printed more like a Trade-A-Plane). Now that was a great cover shot!!

    That flight was the highlight of the weekend (well, one of many highlights). I think I was in Tina’s yellow Waco, with Steve flying, during that flight. Too much fun!!

    Judy, would get a copy for me, too? We don’t get that magazine here. Thanks!

    Judy… If you happen upon the magazines…can you snag a copy for me? I’ve never seen these at our airports — I’ll keep looking but want to be sure to have one for the “archives”!
