Yes I did too June, I thought that Mara, Skip, Doug, Honeybee & Bwana might like to see it as there were volunteers from their & many other countries here in the ATA's flying all sorts of planes.

Yes, they probably will enjoy it. Thanks for posting the link Nordog Kiss

I tend to forget that our overseas friends may not receive the same programmes.

I never knew about the women pilots Nordog and I grew up during the war too, thank you for the link, I really enjoyed learning about them.

They certainly were very brave to get up there and fly the planes.
..........................
As one person wrote in reply on there....''what guts it must have taken to fly those planes with no weapons and always the doubting eye. Great big personalities, great guts and a big bravo to all these women!''.....
...................................

I was very surprised to read the part that these lady pilots never had any weapons, why I wonder was that allowed.

That is just the start ladies look in you local library for books written by Lettice Curtis http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lettice_Curtis (you will not put it down until you have finished reading it) & others ATA's have book titles.

Look for this one, The Forgotten Pilots by Lettice Curtis
