Flying pink

This beauty hangs just above the entrance to the Kalamazoo Air Zoo. It's a Curtiss P-40N Warhawk, but what makes this one special is that it was piloted by Suzanne Parish. She served with the WASPs (Women Airforce Service Pilots) during WWII and donated her Warhawk to the museum during her later years. I'm sure she was some lady! Photo taken in June 2011.


  1. That's a nice angle on the photograph. The old school fighters are very graceful.

  2. 'Tis indeed beautiful. And a very interesting post. I don't think very many people realize that we had women pilots flying in WWII.

  3. Cheers to Suzanne Parish. In New Zealand, we have a jean batten.

    I flew in a Tiger moth in August.

  4. What a neat bird that is. I love the color.

  5. This is fabulous and I imagine the museum is wonderful. These airplanes have been well-restored and cared for.

    Suzanne Parish lived a brave adventure, and I am glad that you included her name.


  6. Joli,bel angle de prise de vue,bonsoir belge.


Thanks for visiting. I love hearing from you.
