The Fly Girls of WWII: WASPs

Over 1100 women served their country during World War II as a member of the Women Airforce Service Pilots, WASP, flying every military aircraft flown by the American Forces from the PT-17 Stearman to the P51 Mustang and B-17 Flying Fortress. Air ferry missions, target practice for artillery crews, and aircraft maintenance shakedown flights are just a few of the types of missions flown by these American Heroines. Celebrate Women’s History Month with Rebecca Sutera Tulloch, a certified FAA pilot, as she tells the story of the WASP as only a pilot can.

Please register for our program through the Batavia Park District.  The presentation starts at 7pm in the Bartholomew Room, Batavia Civic Center, 327 W. Wilson.
