Female WWII Pilots: The Original Fly Girls

About 1,100 young women flew military aircraft stateside during World War II as part of a program called Women Airforce Service Pilots — WASP for short. These civilian volunteers ferried and tested planes so male pilots could head to combat duty.

The only original Sopwith Pup in existence which served with the Royal Flying Corps goes on display today at National Trust Tyntesfield for the next 10 days. Check out the pilot's wicker chair! BBC Radio Bristol
