Storyline

Beyond the Powder: The Legacy of the First Women's Cross-Country Air Race is a documentary film that follows a team of two women air racers in the 2014 Air Race Classic, mirroring the story of the original Air Race of 1929 (also known as the Powder Puff Derby). The first Women's Air Derby in 1929 was a cross-country race flown from Santa Monica to the finish line in Cleveland, kicking off the National Air Races. The eyes of the country watched as these women made history flying cross-country in what was thought of a man's competition. They encountered sabotage, death, and all the difficulties of flying at the dawn of aviation. Beyond the Powder is a tale of adventure and determination. Women today will be inspired by these racing pilots of yesteryear and now. Written by Adam White
