The story of the women airforce service pilots of WWII
The Women With Silver Wings

After the attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941, the U.S. Army Air Forces put out a call for women pilots to aid the war effort. Cornelia Fort, at age 22 a flight instructor in Hawaii, was one of the first to respond. She became one of over 1,100 women from across the nation to make it through the Army's rigorous selection process and earn her wings. The brainchild of trailblazing pilots Nancy Love and Jacqueline Cochran, the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) gave women like Fort a chance to serve their country - and to prove that women aviators were just as skilled as men. While not authorized to serve in combat, the WASP helped train male pilots for service abroad, and ferried bombers and pursuits across the country. This is their story!
