Ninety-Nines to host touch down of 2010 Air Race Classic

From 1947 to 1977, women pilots would fly a cross country race called the Powder Puff Derby. After the last race, in 1977, the race was renamed the Air Race Classic.

The world's oldest association for women pilots will make the Frederick Municipal Airport the finish line for its annual air race. The Frederick -based Sugarloaf Chapter of the Ninety-Nines is hosting the final stop in the Air Race Classic in June 2010.

The Ninety-Nines is an international organization of about 6,000 licensed pilots from 35 countries. The Air Race Classic celebrates 81 years of all-women transcontinental air racing.
