The life of Captain Jackie
Moggridge in video clips.
From the first girl to do a parachute jump in S.Africa to gaining her B licence at Witney Aeronautical College Oxford. At age 18 war broke out so Jackie joined the WAAF and then the ATA where she flew over 1500 deliveries of WW2 planes (83 different types) alone with only a map and a compass. After the war she became the first woman Airline Captain having gained The King's Commendation for valuable services in the air, The Queen's Coronation Medal and was the first to be awarded the Jean Lennox Bird Trophy by the Women Pilots Association for furthering the cause of women in aviation. Whilst in the WRAF Volunteer Reserves for five years after the war she learned to fly jets campaigning to be the first woman to fly through the Sound Barrier, she was one of only 5 women to gain her RAF full wings in 1953. An inspiring and joyful account of a pioneering woman who dealt with prejudice and danger, working in a man's world. A fitting tribute to the men and women of the Air Tansport Auxilary who like Jackie flew as many as five planes a day from factory to Aerodrome to keep the Fighter pilots supplied with Spitfires, Hurricanes, Lancaster Bombers, Mosquitos, Harvards, Blenheims, Beaforts, Fairey Fireflys and more over 150 types in all weathers with no radio contact with the ground. A feat never to be repeated that deserves its place in History.
