Google is paying tribute to her amazing accomplishment with a unique dedicatory Doodle on what might have been her 122nd birthday.
Here’s everything you have to know about the moving ‘Legends’ Bonney.
Who was Maude ‘Legends’ Bonney?
Born November 20, 1897 in Pretoria, South Africa as Maude Rose Rubens, she received the name ‘Legends’ later in her life.
Legends and her family left South Africa, moving first to England then to Australia where she grew up in Melbourne , before heading off to a finishing school in Germany and before long met her better husband Harry Barrington Bonney.
Be that as it may, it was Harry’s cousin, a man named Bert Hinkler, who spark her enthusiasm for flying. Bert was himself a spearheading Australian pilot – in 1928, he was named the first person to fly solo from England to Australia.
What’s more, it took only one trip with Bert in his Avro Avian biplane to inspire her desire to become a pilot. At the point when husband discovered she had been taking flying exercises stealthily, he got her a de Havilland “Vagabond Moth” called My Little Ship.
By 1931 Lores was completely dedicated to bcoming a pilot and took her first performance flight – a record-breaking adventure of almost 1,000 miles from Brisbane, Queensland to Wangaratta, Victoria to meet her dad for dinner.

She kept on pushing the limits for avionics and female pilots and the following year she became the first lady to circumnavigate Australia via air – a voyage of almost 8,000 miles.
It was in 1933 when she truly made her name in flying, becoming the first lady to finish the solo journey from her adopted homeland to the United Kingdom.
It took 157 hours, however Lores’ momentous voyage was loaded with danger all through. She endure overwhelming tempests, two accidents and an experience with a group of water wild ox before touching down in London.
Flight mechanics were not what they are currently, and Lores not just needed to battle with delays brought about by climate and bureaucracy but also needed to do any fixes on the plane herself and fly with no access to radio.
For her trailblazing accomplishment, she was made a MBE by King George in 1934.
Not content with this, after four years she became the first person to fly solo from Australia to her origin of South Africa.
She was named a Member of the Order of Australia in 1991 and got a privileged doctorate from Griffith University, while likewise having a Queensland appointive area named after her. The Bonney Trophy is still awarded each year to an outstanding female British pilot.
Legends passed away in 1994 at the age of 97.
