One tough texan gal

The T-6F Texan was one of the top training aircraft utilized during World War II. The first female pilots to fly for the military trained in these aircraft at Avenger Field in Sweetwater, Texas. More than 1,800 undertook basic training at Avenger Field, while only just over half were accepted into the Women’s Airforce Service Pilot program. This plane can be viewed in the Dyess Linear Air Park. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class April Lancto/released)
