Until fairly recently, the United Kingdom had no national memorial to honor the nearly seven million service and civilian women who made a vital contribution during World War II. That changed in 2005, when a fitting tribute to those women was unveiled near the Cenotaph, the nation’s primary war memorial.
On July 9, 2005, five military helicopters—an Apache, Sea King, Lynx, Chinook, and Merlin—flew above Central London. Later, two Tornado F3 jets thundered overhead. All were flown by female pilots.
