During World War 2, a female service pilot from Ord, Ne was killed while ferrying a fighter aircraft P38 from Chanute field. She earned her pilot license, with the help of the Ord fireman who purchased a light airplane for her, at a very young age of 16. In honor of her, there was a plaque posted at the Grand Island airport. I have tried to remember her name but can’t seem to get the old memory box working. I remember when she would give rides to people at the Grand Island airport. Would you please enlighten me as to her name? George
