About this title


From the first time Rosemarie saw a Fokker Friendship land in a remote outback town of northern Australia, she knew she was going to be a pilot. But before her dream could take flight, the Air Force rejected her because she was a woman, she suffered the horror of miscarrying her third child in a shower (alone in the remote outback of Australia) and she was cut off from the outside world during a rainy season in the tropics with stink beetles eating her only meat supply. She has won several heroism awards, flown movie stars, gold prospectors, and even the Aga Khan. She's lived in remote parts of the world where she had to share her bed with cockroaches and rats. She's survived a back-breaking journey across thousands of miles with her two young daughters, fought against discrimination, abuse, dust storms and cyclones, to become one of the most respected pilots in history. Her story takes you on the ride of your life - so fasten your seatbelts and be prepared to be whisked to the heights of adventure, hardship - and triumph! Today Rosemarie McRae lives on a golf course on the Gold Coast of Australia with her partner, Hugh. Her daughters (a computer programmer and a PHD student in Bio Molecular Science respectively) both live in Brisbane. Rosemarie is a member of the professional international body of Lady helicopter pilots known as "The Whirly Girls". Her membership number is five hundred and thirty. She is also a member of The Ninety Nines, which is the international body of Lady airplane pilots. "She's Indiana Jones meets Amelia Earhart in real life!"
