'When the Foreign Secretary comes to me in person, I know it's about something serious. Especially when he uses an assumed name.'
Sir Arthur Conan
"I fly because I enjoy it; it is freedom in the sky
Teaching is jun; children are infinitely variable; full of possibilities - and they matter."
The two worlds of Miss Frances MacRae, aerobatic ace and London schoolmistress
This film looks at a woman who is equally at home taking classes in Highgate and weaving patterns in the sky over the Surrey countryside.
The first woman to join the British team in the World Aerobatic Championships, Frances MacRae started flying ten years ago. On a demonstration flight, the pilot asked her to take the controls and she was immediately hooked. In eight years, she had mastered her little yellow and red biplane and was taking part in International Championships. She became a teacher just after the war after leaving the Civil Service; she quickly realised that it was what she wanted to do and 25 years later is assistant head of the same school in Highgate.
