Good news, a 1st solo in a Supercub! Fellow lady taildragger Neroli Henwood sent this message and pictures to share about a 1st solo by someone very dear to her – Â her daughter Olivia!
“Just thought I would share a photo and update with you and the taildragger ladies.”
“A couple of days ago my husband Bill, sent our daughter Olivia (19)Â off on her first Solo flight in our Supercub. It was a very exciting morning. I had an idea it may be the special day, so decide to take the camera along and get some pics. She hadn’t flown for a few weeks so wasn’t expecting it on the day, but she flew so well that Dad sent her off. I must admit to feeling a little sick when she flew past and I realized she was on her own. Much more nervous than when I soloed myself! She really enjoyed it and I have attached a photo ofÂ her solo ‘touchdown’ and I was delighted to see in the photo that she had a big smile on her face.”
