On May 28, the Air Zoo in Kalamazoo, Mich., will open “Fly Girls of World War II,” a traveling exhibit that showcases the history of the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP).
The exhibit, created by WASP Deanie Parrish and her daughter, Nancy Parrish, of Wings Across America, shines a light on the contributions the WASP made to fight for America’s freedom. Fly Girls of World War II is included in the Air Zoo’s free general admission. It features original uniforms, a visual history mural, photo collages, a timeline and a mosaic, which includes each of the 1,102 WASP plus Jacqueline Cochran, founder of the WASP.
The Mayborn Museum Complex in Waco, Texas, premiered Fly Girls of World War II, followed by the Women in Military Service for America Memorial in Washington, D.C. The Air Zoo is the first in the Midwest to show the traveling exhibit.
