WOMEN IN THE WLD BLUE... Target-Towing WASP at Camp Davis
WOMEN IN THE WILD BLUE is a tribute to the WASP Women Airforce Service Pilots that flew military planes during WWII. Their main mission was to ferry airplanes from factory to air bases and transport military officers. And they were vital to the war effort as male pilots were becoming scarce as the war progressed and airplane production increased.
As they succeeded in this mission, more risky and challenging pilot work was assigned. They towed aerial targets for antiaircraft gunnery recruits.
Their assignment ended in December 1944 and they went unrecognized for their contributions until they were awarded the Congressional Gold Medal in March 2010.
