An Overlooked Chapter in American History
The film received the prestigious National SILVER TELLY AWARD for historical documentary.
Silver Wings, Flying Dreams: The Complete Story of the Women Airforce Service Pilots was nominated for the Suncoast EMMY as best historical documentary of 2015.
Silver Wings, Flying Dreams tells the story of pioneering women, who for a brief moment in the darkest days of World War II, were able to shatter the glass ceiling and defy the convention that women had no place in the cockpit of a American military aircraft. Surviving WASP relive their personal wartime experiences − ferrying aircraft, flying as test and transport pilots, towing targets for anti-aircraft gunnery practice, and testing top-secret radio control aircraft, forerunners of the drones used today in 21st century warfare.
