Bernice “Bee” Faulk Haydu (Air Race Classic #26) received a call from Washington yesterday
on her flight home from the 2009 Air Race Classic. When they landed in Macon, Georgia, to refuel the call of a lifetime
came in. Bee was asked if she could be in the Oval Office at the White House at 4:30 P.M. on July 1st to witness
President Obama signing into law the Bill for the WASPS to receive the Congressional Gold Medal of Honor for their unselfish
service in World War II. This has been a long, hard fight for the WASP. They have been working on this bill for the past 30
years. It passed the House and Senate just weeks ago and was in the Finance Committee.
The team dropped co-pilot,
Susan King, off in Keystone Heights, Florida, and headed to Jacksonville, Florida, to do laundry, press Bee’s Dress
Uniform and repack her for Washington. She caught a flight this morning (July 1st) and 11:25 A.M. and is one her
way to finalize the dream of all WASPS.
Wings of Dreams Race team (Air Classic #26) had one mission in this 2009 Air
Race. It was to bring awareness to the WASPS and their contribution to our country. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!!!!!!!!
