You may want to check out the November 2010 issue of AOPA Pilot Magazine and read the article “Above the Spill”.  Lady taildragger pilot Sheila Mabbitt is mentioned on page 70, and pictured on page 68.  The article is about GA flying the Gulf oil spill.

DC-3 captain Sheila Mabbitt worked full-time in the gulf coast helping with the clean up efforts.

This is the same DC-3 featured in the BP commercial

You can still see the entire post and Sheila’s other amazing pictures on the following link.
