  • Very cool. I managed to visit during the WASP reunion and got to meet some very fine women. The ladies that actually flew out of Avenger field are a treasure that won't be around for long. Strongly recommend it before there is nothing but memories and a museum left of these pioneering women.
  • Fun step back in history and a good break on our cross country drive. Great information on the WASP program and more importantly the women themselves.
