#TextileTuesday! Kate Lee Adams of Durham wore these blue cotton twill flight coveralls as a Woman Airforce Service Pilot (WASP) during #WWII. A group of civilian volunteers trained by the Army, the WASPs flew military planes in non-combat situations to free up male pilots for battle missions. Because the women were issued used men’s airplane mechanics’ coveralls, most had to roll up the sleeves and cuffs as shown here.
