Three Cheers For Jerrie Mock

April 18, 1964 The governor of Ohio proclaimed “Jerrie Mock Day” in honor of the first woman to fly around the world solo. The trip took 29 days with 21 stopovers. Mock’s Cessna 180 was displayed at the Cessna museum in Kansas for many years and is now at the Smithsonian’s Garber facility. She set at least a half dozen aviation records and detailed her experiences in her book Three-Eight Charlie.
