Bernice “Bee” Falk Haydu, 94, was one of the first women to fly for the U.S. military as a member of the World War II Women Airforce Service Pilots. Haydu was one of the 1,074 qualified women pilots who graduated from training between 1942, when the program began, and December 1944, when it was disbanded. After flying for the WASP, she continued a life in aviation by teaching flight lessons.
