Powder Puff Derby 1930-31

What a lineup! The Powder Puff Derby at Long Beach, California circa 1930-31. Can you spot legendary aviatrix Pancho Barnes?

At the archives in Kelch Aviation Museum, we have a copy of Pancho’s logbook! Looking through it is like looking over her shoulder. Consider donating to our archive fund to help keep this and other treasures safe and sound: kelchmuseum.org/donate

March is Women’s History Month! There are so many amazing female aviators. Who are your favorites?
