Flora Belle Reece, 90, smiles at a photo of herself in a flight suit with wide legs and a cinched waist hitched as high as it could go. "The ladies wore men's gear", she said, "and it dwarfed them." A colonel at their base made them wear turbans - which she hated - because he worried their long hair would get in their eyes. But in those eyes, we see a story just waiting to be told. 

FlyGirls will exemplify the lives, loves, and experiences of the women who served during World War II.
