New at Winged Victory: interview with author of Lady Icarus

I interviewed Lindie Naughton, author of the 2004 biography Lady Icarus: The Life of Lady Mary Heath.

It makes for pretty interesting reading, both from the standpoint of how one goes about researching a biography - of anyone - and also gives some insight into the rather tragic life of this larger-than-life woman, Britain's "Lady Lindy" - Mary Heath, the first woman to fly an open cockpit plane from Cape Town, South Africa to London, England - a journey that took three months!
