The WASP Museum in Sweetwater recently received some special visitors when Wally Funk visited the museum with two of her flight students, Patty Herbel and Christi Yong.
"I just wanted to bring the girls with me so that we could visit the museum," said Funk.
Wally Funk has been flying professionally since 1957 and she has accumulated over 18,000 hours of flying time. "I have known about 120 WASPs in my 55 years of flying, so this is like homecoming for me," she said.
