The museum is in "Hanger One," where the WASPS trained. It has a mockup of the barracks where the women lived
A car and luggage from the era
Even the outhouse the women used!
There was a mockup of the "Link Trainer" where the WASPS did simulator training. The girls were amazed at how small the space was. In the first picture, Zoe is pointing to a picture of Hazel Ying Lee in the Link Trainer.
The main job of the WASPS was to pick up airplanes fresh from the factories and ferry them to training bases for men to fly, or to shipping points where the planes were packed and shipped overseas. Imagine how dangerous that was -- these women were often the first to fly a freshly-manufactured plane and thus the first to find out its flaws, some of which were fatal flaws.
One slight disappointment for the girls was that there was little evidence of Hazel Ying Lee in the Museum. We found one picture, as I mentioned above, and Hazel's name on the list of WASPs who died in the line of duty:
Still, the girls had a great time, and want to go back for the annual WASP Homecoming when Maya is 8; they give free airplane rides to children 8 and up!
