    Great article, Bill. I’ve always been interested in the early women aviators–comes from my dad being a P-51 fighter jock. (He never had a problem with women pilots, although his buddy did. I know, I met him. The guy was nice, but a true male chauvinist when it came to women pilots.) I know of Jerrie Cobb and the aborted attempt to have women in the Mercury program. Going to pick up DeConnick’s CAPTAIN MARVEL. You’ve got my interest whetted!
