FLYING FOR VICTORY:

Women Pilots in World War II

In the next installment of Delaware Portrait in Time, we profile two best friends who heard the call, and took to the skies.

Ethel Finley and Scottie Gough were World War II "WASP" - Women Airforce Service Pilots.

They joined 1,100 other women who learned to fly military aircraft and support the troops overseas.

The story of these courageous women, next.
