Crippled Girl Learns To Fly (Aug, 1936)
Crippled Girl Learns To Fly
CRIPPLED by infantile paralysis while still a child, and not yet able to walk, plucky, 18-year-old Betty Snell, of St. Thomas, Ontario, is seeking a private pilot’s license. An air trip to Toronto aroused her interest in aviation. Capt. Tom Williams taught her to fly in a special hand control plane fitted by the London, Ont, Flying Club. She is a student at Alma College, and is interested in broadcasting.
