    Nikita Krushchev: a miner's son, a rough and simple peasant, a revolutionary, an ardent party worker, and eventually one of the two most powerful men in the world. A cheerful figure at ease among cornfields, or on a factory floor; or hostile at the United Nations, taunting and accusing the West. On a state visit to the USA, he famously said, "We will bury you"; at the UN he once removed a shoe to bang it on the desk to make a point.

(At the time she was the only woman in the world to hold a full ground-engineer's licence.) In the remote jungles and islands of south-east Asia, her flying ability and engineering knowledge enabled her to complete the flight.
