Shooting Star: The First Attempt By A Woman To Reach Hawaii By Air
Shooting Star: The First Attempt By A Woman To Reach Hawaii By Air
Nearly everyone is familiar with Amelia Earhart. But very few know the story of another woman aviator, who, until now has remained little more than than a footnote in aviation history - that is, until now.
Shooting Star tells the story of Mildred Doran, who, in 1927 set her sights on becoming the first woman to fly from the West Coast of the United States to Hawaii, a distance of 2,400 miles. She was a participant in the Dole Transpacific Air Race which, promised fame and fortune to the first aviator to land at Honolulu from Oakland, California. This is her story.

ADVANCE REVIEW: "As one who was a crew chief on the US's first jet fighter, the P-80 "Shooting Star" and being stationed at Selfridge Field in Michigan, I was pleased to read the story of another Michigan native, Mildred Doran. The book is a great read for anyone with an interest in early aviation. My father, Mark Brann, the 3881st person to be licensed to fly in the US and who knew Harriet Quimby, the first female licensed pilot, would have loved this book."

BOEING P-26A The P-26A marked a significant step in the evolution of fighter aircraft -- it became the U.S. Army Air Corps' first all-metal monoplane fighter in regular service. Affectionately nicknamed the "Peashooter" by its pilots, the P-26A could fly much faster in level flight than the Air Corps' older wood and fabric biplane fighters. The P-26A also had a higher landing speed. Although not initially delivered with wing flaps, P-26As were later fitted with them to reduce landing speeds. Even with its monoplane design and all-metal construction, the Peashooter retained some traditional features, such as an open cockpit, fixed landing gear and external wing bracing. The P-26A became the last Air Corps fighter to have these obsolete characteristics. The first of three prototype P-26s flew in March 1932. After purchasing these aircraft, the Air Corps ordered a total of 111 of the production version, the P-26A, and 25 of the later B and C models. Boeing delivered the first P-26As to the Air Corps in December 1933. The P-26 remained the Air Corps front-line fighter until 1938, when the Curtiss P-36A and the Seversky P-35 began to replace it. The P-26 also flew in foreign air forces. In 1934 Boeing sold an export version to the Chinese, who flew it in combat against the Japanese. In December 1941, the Philippine government employed the then-obsolete P-26 against the Japanese in a futile effort. This P-26A reproduction is painted to represent the commander's aircraft of the 19th Pursuit Squadron, 18th Pursuit Group, stationed at Wheeler Field, Hawaii, in 1938.
