Details

This is an original press photo. You'd Think Flying your own plane would eliminate the luggage-limit problem, but it didn't help California housewives Gladys Hogins and Trixie-Ann Schubert, who landed here en route home form Nassau to lunch with Dolores Ardayno... The pair traveled with less than 10 pounds of clothes, so it wouldn't slow them down in the All-Women International Air Race, Los Angeles to Nassau. T'wasn't such a packing triumph, they confessed...they sent their cocktail clothes ahead by commercial flight. Almost didn't have a pane to race. at that, confided Mrs. Hogins, the pilot. The one they'd lined up was rented the week end before by two men who demolished it in Mexico when they ran into a burro on takeoff! It was almost deadline when the anxious ladies found a substitute. At that, they admitted cheerfully, they finished 16th. The long course included 8 hours over Texas with no landmarks (flying by instrument was banned)...but the biggest difficulty was strictly feminine, they chorused: "Have you ever tried to get in and out of a small plane in a sheath?"
