Thread: Women Airforce Pilots of WWII

  1. #1

    Default Women Airforce Pilots of WWII

    At 9 p.m. tonight (Tuesday 20th November) PBS America (HD Freeview channel 94) is showing a programme entitled 'Women Airforce Pilots of WWII' about the 25,000 women, who volunteered to become WASP (Women Airforce Service Pilots). I am guessing that they were the equivalent of the British Air Transport Auxiliary pilots.

    It will be repeated on Wednesday 21st at 00.40 a.m., 9.55 a.m. and 2.50 p.m..

    PBS America also have a regular series called 'Pioneers in Aviation'.

    I do not understand why it is not available in the U.S.A., since it is a U.S. television network.

    Looks like it was on PBS over a year ago and we missed it.

    It was quite a good programme. It seems that the ladies of the WASP had a wider range of activities than their British counterparts in the Air Transport Auxiliary.
