Exhibit honors WASPs of WWII

Lone Star Flight Museum’s “Fly Girls of WWII” highlights the contributions of the 1,830 Women Airforce Service Pilots who served in the experimental training program.

Where: 11551 Aerospace Ave.

When: 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday; noon-5 pm Sunday.

Details: In November 1942, the first training class of 28 women arrived at Houston Municipal Airport to complete their primary, basic and advanced training. Due to complications with weather and heavy air traffic, the WASP program was moved in February 1943 to Avenger Field in Sweetwater. After earning their silver wings, these aviators were deployed to 120 bases across the United States. Thirty-eight women lost their lives in the line of duty, but it wasn’t until 1977 that WASPs were granted veteran status. In 2010, they received the Congressional Gold Medal.
