ABOUT A WASP in the Spotlight

On Saturday, April 29, 2023, at the Homecoming Celebration & Fly-in, the WASP Museum unveiled its new collection of special WASP in the Spotlight exhibits for the 2023-24 year.

This quilt represents the most complete account of these mighty pilots and their WASP program.
