World Champion Air Racer Paul Bonhomme Interviewed - Palatinate
With the first race of the 2010 Red Bull Air Race World Series Championship fast approaching, defending world champion Paul Bonhomme defends his sponsorship against its critics.

"Like any other sport, we have to generate revenue to cover our costs, and we earn our 'bread and butter' by trying to sell advertising or through sponsorship. It is very similar to most motor racing financial formats".

Before Raymonde de Laroche from You Fly, Girl by Cathy Gale
Why this title?
A very valuable book in the history of women aviation pioneers is called Before Amelia. This title irritates a few people, as Amelia Earhart wasn't the first or even necessarily the best woman pilot, she is just the most famous. (That's not a dig at Earhart, I'm just stating the facts. While Earhart was concentrating on her long distance flights, other women were out doing other things, but none of them received her press. And of course, none of them disappeared in the Pacific Ocean.)
But for the average reader today, the title does work. If it was called Before Louise, it wouldn't be clearly a book on aviation, for all that Louise Thaden was one of the brightest stars in the women pilots firmament. But call it Before Amelia, and practically everyone can extrapolate what it's about! ...
