Amazing story of flying in the 1920's and 30's - dangerous, uncomfortable and so many mechanical problems. These were detailed with descriptions of the long haul races Chubbie Miller took part in. Then the story suddenly turned into a love traingle and then murder trial. While Bill was not convicted, he met a tragic end not long after crashing his plane in the desert. ( )

Book description
Petite, glamorous and beguiling, Jessie "Chubbie" Miller was one remarkable woman...flyer, thrill seeker, heartbreaker. No adventure was too wild for her, no danger too extreme. And all over the world men adored her.

When the young Jessie left suburban Melbourne and her newspaper husband in 1927, little did she know that she'd become the first woman to complete an England to Australia flight (with a black silk gown thrown into her small flight bag, just in case,) or fly the first air race for women with Amelia Earhart, or that she would disappear over the Florida Straits feared lost forever only to charm her way to a rescue. Nor could she have predicted that five years later she'd find herself at the centre of one of the most notorious and controversial murder trials in United States history. And all this began with something as ridiculously mundane as a pat of butter.
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

The remarkable true story of a beguiling Melbourne housewife who in the 1920s seeks international fame, fortune and adventure as an aviator and finds herself as the central figure in a sensational American murder trial.
