Fly Girls of WWII graphic

WASP Ruth Underwood Florey


"No Regrets"


Stationed at Camp Davis, North Carolina during WWII, Ruth was one of the first women to fly tow target missions in A-24's (much like a Navy dive bomber). She would fly her missions over the beach, while ground crews fired anti aircraft shells at her target. Ruth is one of a handful of WASP who later went on to fly the highly classified PQ 'drone' missions.
