Hazel Ying Lee, the first Chinese American woman to fly for the United States military, became a licensed pilot in 1932. She flew fighter aircraft to their destinations as they poured out of American factories for the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP). After 12 years of service, Lee was tragically killed at the age of 32 when she was involved in a mid-air collision while piloting a P-63 Fighter.
