One of 1,074 women to earn their wings as a WASP (Women’s Air Force Service Pilot), Ann Darr spent World War II towing targets, mapping unknown terrain, and flight-testing aircraft in the New Mexican desert. Recently, she translated her memories into a book of poetry, Flying the Zuni Mountains. Under a canopy of artificial stars, Darr reads from her verse and the museum shows slides of WASPs in action.
