WASP were stationed at 120 Army air bases across America. They flew B-26s and B-29s—to prove to male pilots that those planes were actually safe to fly. Numbering only about 1,000, this group of extraordinary women will forever continue to serve in a way none can deny them: WASP were the role models for every generation of female pilots and astronauts that takes off after them.

They forever changed the role of women in aviation.
