Nancy Love: WASP Pilot

Nancy Harkness Love (1914-1976) earned her pilot’s license at age 16 and worked as a test pilot and air racer in the 1930s. During World War II she convinced General William Tunner to set up a group of female pilots to ferry aircraft from factories to air bases. Her proposal was approved as the Women’s Auxiliary Ferrying Squadron (WAFS). Nancy commanded this unit and later all ferrying operations in the newly formed Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP). She was awarded the Air Medal and was appointed lieutenant colonel in the US Air Force Reserve in 1948.
