By creatively blending interviews with numerous surviving WASP and footage featuring restored WWII aircraft with archival film footage, still images, and insight from WASP historian Dr. Katherine Sharp Landdeck, this documentary brings to life the complete WASP story as no film has done before.
Silver Wings, Flying Dreams captivates and inspires viewers of all ages with the remarkable true story of the WASP, highlighitng their amazing achievements and their long road to recognition and obtaining veterans benefits and finally being awarded the Congressional Gold Medal.
Produced and directed by nationally acclaimed documentary filmmaker, Bill Suchy, with the generous insight and cooperation of numerouus surviving WASP, The National WASP Museum, The Commemorative Air Force, The Ninety-Nines International Organization of Women Pilots, The Daughters of the American Revolution, and WASP Historian Dr. Kathleen Sharp Landdeck, this doumentary is an excellent program to show to help celebrate Memorial Day, July 4th, Veterans Day and during Women's History month.
