Weekend At Pancho's

The Ninety-Nines is an organization of women pilots. My mother is an officer in the San Fernando Valley Chapter, located in Van Nuys, California. She managed to snag 3 'guest' invites to the Palmdale Conference so that my wife, my brother and I could attend 2 days of tours/briefings in the Palmdale/Mojave area, including a tour of Edwards AFB, Twin Buttes Antique Airstrip, Mojave Air and Space Port, and the SOFIA Airborne Infrared Telescope.


Pancho Barnes was a pioneering aviator, member of the Ninety-Nines, owner of the Happy Bottom Riding Club, and founder of the first movie stunt pilots' union. She has 'patron saint' status among the Ninety-Nines.
