WASP Ferry Pilot

The WASP were the first women in history trained to fly American military aircraft. They ferried aircraft from factories to training bases. They also flew many diverse non-combat missions, such as towing aerial gunnery targets, and serving as instructors and test pilots. The WASP logged over 60 million miles and flew every type of aircraft used during the war, including fighters and heavy bombers. Thirty-eight WASP died in service to their country during WWII.
