A Camel Cigarettes ad from a 1944 LIFE Magazine. Teddy Kenyon taking an F6FHellcat for a test run. I Like the blend of photography and cartoon art.

Great ad! Also, great information that Gil added. Very interesting that she was a test pilot during WWII. It is amazing what is uncovered that women did during WWII.

It is "normal", classical and typical -- US WWII era women-pilots are underestimated up to this time. Show me a book or article on women who -- for instance -- supported the process of the AAF glider pilots training.

Gregory,

 

I am in total agreement! I am amazed how many people in today's time STILL don't believe all of the accomplishments that women made in WWII.
