From the Director:
On today, Labor Day, we pay tribute to the hard-working men and women of the USA. We also remember the hardworking men and women of WWII whose job it was to deliver planes to the battle field.
This map shows the hundreds of training bases where women pilots delivered planes that were used to train male pilots. Once delivered to Newark, NJ, or Alameda, CA, the aircraft was transported overseas to a battle zone by ship, or was flown by a male pilot. Planes delivered to Great Falls, Montana, were transferred to Soviet pilots, some of whom were women. There were also approximately 120 home bases for WASP who flew other kinds of missions.
