What an exciting time!
We now have 26 WASP, we’ve added 2 more since the last post and 1 had to back out due to health reasons…I’m she will be flying with us in spirit!
We’ve also added several more pilots and planes, including a DC3 and a B25! We also have (unconfirmed) the possibility of several T-6 Texans – one of the favorites to fly by many of the WASP. So (without the T-6’s) that gives us a total of 18 pilots and planes. We’ll keep you posted as we confirm additional pilots and planes.
We still need sponsors and donors! We invite anyone who loves these women like we do, to help us bring this event into being. If you would like to donate, you can now do so online. Just go to our donate page! No matter what the size of your donation, every little bit helps! And if you are business or organization and would like to sponsor the event, please contact us for more information!
Stay tuned for more updates coming weekly, if not daily! And please take the time to register on this site to stay up to date on what’s happening.
The response has been overwhelming so we have extended the deadline! We have 25 WASP signed up and ready to fly on this exciting mission! We also have 10 pilots who have volunteered themselves and their planes to participate in this historic event – flying a WASP into Avenger field!
Each WASP who has signed up to participate has their very own personal page on this web site, complete with a brief biography and photos.
If you are a WASP and see your page with nothing posted, it means we don’t have information or have not found it yet. If there is information or photos you would like to include, please send it to us at email@example.com and we will do our best to get the information posted as fast as humanly possible. Biography information can simply be typed into a Word document or into an email. Images need to be digital (if you need help, let us know) – we would love both past and present photos if possible.
Thank you to all the WASP for your service to this country and to those joining us on this mission both physically and in spirit. Thank you to the pilots, the volunteers, the sponsors and all of our supporters for helping to put this together. May Operation Fifinella be the best mission yet!
