The lead strip was originally "[[Kitty Hawke and her All-Girl Air Crew]]", drawn in full colour by [[Ray Bailey]], about a group of women running a charter airline. The strip was not very popular - it was apparently felt to be too masculine - and it was moved to the black and white interior pages, replaced on the cover by the schoolgirl strip "[[Wendy and Jinx]]", written by [[Michael Hastings|Michael]] and [[Valerie Hastings]] and drawn by Bailey.
