    Military aviation proudly recounts its past, susta Military aviation proudly recounts its past, sustains its present and looks towards its future. Part of its history tells the story of the female pilots who stepped up to ensure aircraft were available and ready during World War II. The WASPs, or the Women Airforce Service Pilots, provided an invaluable service to our country in wartime. Their legacy influenced future women in military aviation who became leaders, innovators, and decision-makers. Now, their legacy lives on as the most lethal and connected fifth-generation aircraft, the F-35 Lightning II, operates daily worldwide.

In 2015, then U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Christine Mau became the first female F-35 pilot when she completed a flight in the Lightning II. Mau retired in 2017, but her story remains a key highlight of the F-35 story.
