WWII Airwoman, 99, Honored With Birthday Flyover


Dorothy Olsen, one of one thousand woman who flew planes during WWII, never had the glory of flying combat missions over Europe or the Pacific. However, her role, picking up planes from factories and transporting them to stateside airbases, was no less critical. On her 99th birthday, it was time for those same planes to come to her – at Seattle’s Boeing Field.
