Here are pictures of a few real life Rosies — women who worked on the A-31 (“Vengeance”) dive bomber aircraft — a single-engine, low-wing plane that could carry a 2-man crew and had six machine guns. They’re painting, bolting and — yes — even riveting these planes to get them ready for service.
These photos were taken by Alfred T Palmer in Nashville, Tennessee in February of 1943, and published by the US Office of War Information.
Can we fix it? Yes, we can!
