Hazel Lee was one of the first Chinese American women to obtain a pilot’s license in America and the first to fly for the U.S. Military. Lee was a member of the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) and flew during World War II.
I love reading about female pilots from the early twentieth century. There were so many restrictions placed on women during that time. That women like Hazel Lee were flying through the air completely free - doing what the guys were doing- is completely inspiring.
