Summary
Drawing on archival footage, rarely seen home movies, and interviews with the participants themselves, "Fly Girls" tells the story of the Women's Airforce Service pilots (WASP). Led by America's most accomplished aviatrix Jacqueline Cochran, these courageous women logged more than sixty million miles, ferrying planes throughout the United States, test-piloting experimental aircraft, and training men to fly. Still, the WASP fought a daily, sometimes deadly, battle for respect.
