WWII Female Air Force Pilots Still Flying High

From 1943 to 1944, the Women Airforce Service Pilots flew more than 60 million miles across the United States chartering soldiers, test-flying planes and conducting training exercises during World War II. The 1,102 female pilots were honored at the Rose Parade on Wednesday, with eight veteran pilots taking a ride atop their float.
