Flying Pursuit
Pursuit is the term for fighter aircraft, most commonly used in the language of military aviation. During the war years, Hazel and the other women who flew pursuit, "ferried" or transported thousands of pursuit aircraft as they poured out of American factories. Over 70 different kinds of aircraft were flown by the women pilots, including P-39's, P-63's, P-47's and P-51's, all critically needed fighter planes for the American war effort.
