An important time in American history.You could actually meet up these men with their flying machines. They would land locally and give you the thrill of your life getting in a Jenny biplane and soar over the countryside. inspired from my life as a young actress struggling to make ends meet as a waitress. I was so proficient at my job that I also bused my own tables because the bus boys were too slow. My best friend Howard called me Suzanna Barnstorm. That word stuck in my mind many decades until I became interested in recording history. I studied the barstorming days and knew that I had to recreate a scene. I met an American Airline pilot who actually refurbished these beautiful old planes and he is my pilot surrounded by my friends and family to create my story.
