Pivet, Barbe. Barbe Pivet was created by Herman Petersen (Doc Miller) and appeared in nine stories in Air Stories (U.S.) and Wings from 1927 to 1930, beginning with “Twenty-Four Hours” (Air Stories (U.S.), Oct. 1927).

Barbe Pivet is a South Seas Adventurer. She is a female pilot who flies around the South Seas, looking for buried treasure and fighting pirates and other vile men, sailors and pilots. She is French and is assisted by Roy Burnett, a treasure hunter who is in love with her. It was Burnett who initially rescued Pivet from a group of drunken Kanakas and thereby won the eternal gratitude of Pivet’s father.
