The Hurricane Girls
The inspirational true story of the women who dared to fly
The extraordinary true story of the last surviving 'Attagirls' who flew planes from factories to the front line during the Second World War
While their husbands, brothers and sweethearts fought in Europe and their mothers, sisters and friends kept the home fires burning, for the first time, a group of remarkable women took to the skies. They weren't allowed into combat but risked their lives in bad weather and without radios to bring our boys the aircraft they so vitally needed.
Employed by the Air Transport Auxiliary, these women were known as 'attagirls'. They proved that women too could master Spitfires, Mosquitoes and Hawker Hurricanes, forging a new path in aviation.
The Hurricane Girls is the fascinating, moving and inspirational story of bravery, determination and remarkable women.
