Fly Girls - Celebrating Women's History Month - Wednesday, 3/20 at 6:00 PM

During a time when most women did not even have driver’s licenses, this group of women were flying military aircraft to help release male pilots for combat duty. Their duties included ferrying planes, towing targets to give ground and air gunners practice shooting with live ammunition. They also tested planes for sabotage and flew new planes to ensure instruments were safe. Come learn more about what this amazing group of women did for our country.
