Northwest Florida filmmakers are jetting out to produce an investigative documentary on the life of DeFuniak Springs native Jackie Cochran. The documentary will unravel the fascinating story of Cochran, an intrepid Women Airforce Service Pilot (WASP) of World War II, who set more records in altitude, speed, and distance than any other pilot in the twentieth century. The story is inspired by Nancy Hasty’s riveting play, based on the book Superwoman Jacqueline Cochran by Billie Pittman Ayers and Beth Dees. This documentary aims to sift fact from fiction, inviting viewers to consider Cochran’s place alongside aviation legends like Chuck Yeager and Amelia Earhart in the American canon.
