The Groundbreaking Women

An Air Transport Auxiliary veteran. This woman and many women like her were pilots during WW2 and receive the equal amount of pay as male pilots – an all time first for the British Government. But, it is interesting to note that the UK politicians didn’t manage to bring in the Equal Pay Act until 1970 – 25 years after the end of World War 2. Politicians? Who needs them!?

These very brave women pilots were so very impressive on many levels. This lady had flown just about every allied aircraft there was to fly during WW2. She is seen here standing next to a Spitfire Mk1 which was her favourite aircraft to fly.
