This documentary pays tribute to the remarkable life and legacy of Margaret "Maggie" Ringenberg (1921-2008), a US Army Air Force WASP (Women's Air Service Pilot) and renowned long-distance aviation racer. Re-enactments, archival photos and film, and insightful interviews from those closest to her, shed light on Maggie's fearlessness, confidence, competitive nature, drive and determination. The program covers the Indiana native's numerous aviation adventures during and after WWII, including ferrying personnel and supplies, test-flying new planes, and serving as the lead pilot in around-the-world and London-to-Sydney races.
