Our “Downunder” Girls!

I have say it – – – I just love all the men that check out LadiesLoveTaildraggers! What, you say? Men – on a LADY taildraggers site? You bet! The men always know all the cool girls. Well, sometimes they come just to see if lady taildragger pilots really do exist but when they know taildraggin’ gals, they send them our way. It’s a beautiful thing!

Take Philip Jones of South Australia for example. He not only knows four women who fly taildraggers in Australia, he’s forwarded them links to the blog and bought them all lady taildragger t-shirts. So far we’ve registered Donna Trigg, Dianne Hart & Susan Bolton of the ‘Downunder’ group. Phil tells me it’s really difficult to get all the ladies together in one spot at one time but he did manage to get Donna & Dianna together for a quick photo op.

Donna & Dianne look lovely in their new t’s and I’m a little jealous – it’s summertime in Australia!

Now this is a nice set-up!


Let me introduce you to Philip Jones & his fine Supercub. Philip's got a project in his future; he's waiting on new Supercub kit to arrive and hoping it gets there before Christmas.

Thanks Philip and keep on recruiting for us Downunder!

    Wow. Only four. Those ladies are really outside the bos. I’m starting to feel like a drop in the bucket with all the Lady Taildraggers in the USA!
