    P 51 Level

    The North American P-51 Mustang was the fastest long range fighter in the Army Air Forces arsenal. Made famous by the Tuskeegee Airman, these aircraft were used to escort and protect long range bombers during WWII. WASP also flew P-51's, as they ferried the aircraft to points of embarkation. The planes were then wrapped up and put on ships bound for the front lines.

    At the P-51 level, you will receive a box of 4 boxes of Bishops shipped to your home with blank gift cards in each box. We will encourage you to post your own inspirational stories and photos with Bishop. You will also be updated on our progress with Bishop's upcoming book.

    B 26 Level

    The B-26 Martin Maurauder, a.k.a. 'Widowmaker,' was a twin engine 'attack bomber' flown by US forces during WWII. Accident rates in early training flights were so high, that WASP were given the opportunity to fly the planes to prove to some male pilots that the aircraft was safe to fly. The experiment worked! The B-26 had the best record in combat of any US bomber.

    At the B-26 Level, we are incredibly grateful for your support! You will receive a box with 5 boxes of Bishops with appropriate gift cards.

    With your permission, we will happily post your name online along with our thanks for helping Bishop FLY.

    The Jackie Cochran

    Pledge in honor of Jacqueline Cochran, the woman with the vision of a corps of American women pilots who could relieve male pilots for combat during WWII. This pledge is one dollar for every WASP who flew as part of the Army Air Forces during World War II. Bear reward is the same as the Five Star General, but names of donors will be highlighted with links to their own sites.

    This honor is for SPONSORS of Bishop's coming website: Bishop's Hangar--which includes a Pilot's Readyroom where visitors can hear stories from the WASP. Once the site is launched, it will grow based on lessons and stories from those who share with Bishop and online.

    Individual or company names will be 'above the fold.' This would be a wonderful way to help honor the WASP by remembering one you have met or one whose story you want to hear.

    **Stories will include video of WASP interviewed by Wings Across America.
