I attended an estate sale several years ago and it turned out to be the estate of the pioneering lady pilot Teresa James, a WAF, W.A.S.P. and an original member of the Ninety-Nines. One of the mant items I purchased was this book by Bob Hope "They Got Me Covered". It is in pretty rough condition but it is signed twice by Bob Himself. I like the way he refers to her as "Jesse James" with a little inscription that says "read this when you're flying blind, it's funny that way". Anyway I just wanted to share this little piece of history with you.
Here is some more information on her. http://waspfinalflig...-james-waf.html
PS- It mentions her husband George "Dink" Martin, I also have a cardboard die cut standing photo (approx. 1 foot tall) of him that belonged to her also. It's probably one of the only photos of him that exist. When I find it, I'll post it also. Anyway, thanks for letting me share and reminding us all of the service she gave for her country in a time when women weren't respected as much as they are today. Godspeed Teresa James, they don't make them like you anymore.
