WORLD WAR II INTERPRETATIONS & PRESENTATIONS


THE FLY GIRLS OF WW2



During WW2, over 1100 women, led by Jackie Cochran, the "Speed Queen"; served their country by flying every military aircraft in the American Armed Forces from the PT-17 Stearman to the P51 Mustang and the B-17 Flying Fortress. Air ferry missions, target practice for artillery crews, and the aircraft maintenance shakedown flights are just a few of the types of missions flown by these American Heroines. Join Rebecca Tulloch, a certified FAA pilot herself, as she tells the story of the Fly Girls of WW2 as only a pilot can.

"Fly Girls the Series" Coming Soon. Check out the Official Television Series Website at www.flygirlstheseries.com

PEACHES AND BASEBALL

"There's No Crying in Baseball"
The 1992 film, A League of Their Own, introduced modern America to the Women of the Greatest Generation who played professional baseball to keep up the morale on the American Home Front during WW2. The All-American Girls Professional Baseball League was so successful that it continued for nearly a decade after the war ended. Who were the real women who joined the league that inspired the film? Join Rebecca Tulloch, a modern Rockford Peach and manager of the "League of Our Own" vintage softball team, as she traces the truth and fiction about the film, A League of their Own.
