Fly Girls" benefits from the contemporary interviews of many surviving WASPs. These interviews, along with archival footage, capture the truly important job these pilots were doing and reflect the can-do attitude that permeated all levels of World War II American society. Although this film does chronicle the support the WASPs received from top military leaders, these women were not recognized as military members and were not even given veteran status until 1977. This film stands as a testimony to their courage and strength.
