”..Shortly after we settled in, Chuck drove us to the base to show us the X-1. He purposely hadn’t told me he named the plane Glamorous Glennis, but there it was, written on the nose. He did that with his Mustang in England, but this was an important research airplane, and I was very surprised. And proud. He said, “You’re my good-luck charm, hon. Any airplane I name after you always brings me home..” “
