Juanita announced in February 1931 that she planned to set a new coast-to-coast record that month but I have not been able to find any evidence that she did. She did fly her Bull Pup to 35 Southern California airports on May 19, however. Newspapers reported that she would attempt a non-stop flight from Seattle to Tokyo as well as a round-the-world flight in the City of Los Angeles. The O. W. Timm Airplane Corporation built her open cockpit high parasol wing airplane for the flight. It was the fifth Timm Collegiate model built. To raise money for the record attempt, Juanita sold stamps with her plane on it. The projected date of departure was April 1932.
To prepare for the flight, Juanita studied navigation with Capt. T. Cameron Wilkinson, former Royal Air Force pilot. He demonstrated the basic principles by mounting a globe at the correct angle and surrounding it with a cage of wire denoting the significant projections of the earth. The last information referencing the flight was December 1931. Juanita, in a newspaper interview, stated that she would leave soon for Tokyo; the City of Los Angeles would be put on board to be reassembled when she reached her destination. This is the last piece of information that I have been able to find on Juanita. It seems apparent that she was unable to raise the necessary monies to finance the flight. If anyone has additional information, please contact me.
