Joan Hughes videos

Some of us old-timers had the privilege of doing our flying instructor courses with the inestimable Joan Hughes. A remarkable lady, too modest to boast about her illustrious career in aviation. First solo aged 15, wartime service in the ATA, film work (including Those Magnificent Men and Blue Max).

I recently found two videos featuring Joan on YouTube.:

Here's her Wiki entry.

In the restaurant at White Waltham there's a photo of the diminutive Joan dwarfed by a Stirling bomber, one of the many types she flew.
