Betty Pauline Stine
Sep 13, 1921-Feb 25, 1944 

The investigating report stated that sparks from the engine exhaust had set fire to the tail of the plane. Just before the plane crashed into a mountain, Betty was spotted by a miner coming down in her parachute. It wasn't until later that the miner and two others reached Betty. She had been dragged across the rocky terrain by the strong winds and was is very bad shape. She was taken to the base hospital at Blyth where she died.

Very shortly after Betty's death, a parachute training system was built at Avenger field and twelve hours of instruction were added to basic training.

Betty was born in Fort Worth but grew up in Santa Barbara, California. She attend the public schools and state college for two years and then transferred to the University of Arizona. However, she returned to Fort Worth Municipal Airport of flight training before joining the WASP.

She was an only child and was the great niece of humourist Will Rogers. She was named after his wife.
