A Brief History of the WASP: The Women Air Force Service Pilots (WASP) formed in 1943 and were headed by famed aviatrix Jacqueline Cochran. WASPs filled a vital need for military service pilots during a time when male pilots were needed for combat duties. The WASPs logged over 60 million miles. They flew virtually every type of aircraft from trainers to fighters to heavy bombers. Above often flying them as skillfully as their male counterparts. The WASP’s mascot, Fifinella, was a female gremlin designed by Walt Disney. Its job was to ward off male gremlins who were believed to cause aircraft malfunctions. Fifinella patch are also available separately.
