I'm flattered, but that is not Nancy Parrish in the photo. Respectfully, if you could make this change: "WASP Ellen Wimberly Campbell, 44-W-7, Women Airforce Service Pilots, WWII in the cockpit of a Beech AT-10 Wichita trainer, 1944. She earned her WASP Wings and was sent to Columbus Army Air Field in Columbus, Mississippi. She would have flown as an engineering test pilot-- checking out redlined AT-10's to make sure they were safe for the cadets to fly. She was one of 1,102 women who flew Army Air Force missions in the US to free male pilots to fly overseas." Thank you for correcting the record.

Ms. Parrish:
Thank you so much for providing this improved information. The caption has been corrected with what would fit into the caption space with the rest of your data on Mrs. Campbell still in your comment. Thank you again.
