Catherine Vail Bridge - Interview with Catherine Vail Bridge: clip: How they would get a return flight back from a ferrying mission; had priority seating on commercial flights, took trains, hitched rides on military craft; flying to Great Falls, Montana, but not beyond to Alaska; the excuse was there weren't quarters there for women, but there were nurses stationed there; Russian pilots flew B-25s into Russia and China; preferred flying smaller planes like the Mustang; larger aircraft was "like flying a barn."
