Flying through Arizona: The Story of the First National Women’s Air Race with Natalie Stewart-Smith

January 16 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

FREE

In 1929, the first national women’s air race from Santa Monica, CA to Cleveland, OH passed through Arizona. Stopping in Yuma, Phoenix, and Douglas, the intrepid fliers solidified their determination and sisterhood along these Arizona waypoints. Who were these aviators? What were their planes like in 1929? What challenges did they encounter along the way? And what about that telegram sent to pilot Thea Rasche, “Beware of sabotage”? There is much to explore!

This program is cohosted by Prescott Public Library. This is an in-person and virtual event.
