It's a she!

2011/03/21

Caught on camera today at Korat, Thailand was a female RSAF [sic] F-16 fighter pilot. While she tried to avoid eye contact, we still managed to capture a picture of her.

IMO, to quote the novel "A Piece of Cake" by Derek Robinson: very expressive eyebrows. 8P

I remember when an F/A-18 buzzed the hell out of my unit by Lake Habbania. I saw a big dark shape banking toward us and realized that it wasn't the usual Cobra or Apache. I covered my ears and yelled down through the turret hole that some dude was buzzing us not 50 feet above our 1151. Then the Marine air controller in the back seat (can't remember what they were actually called) told me it was was a chick. She did a few more flybys, and it was the best airshow I ever had. Totally would have sh!t myself had I been an insurgent.

I just used the Search function, and am a bit surprised no one has mentioned USN Lieutenant Kara Spears Hultgreen (1965-1994) in this thread. R.I.P.

F-15E Strike Eagles Female Pilots

Posted 3/31/2011 Updated 3/31/2011

3/31/2011 - BAGRAM AIRFIELD, Afghanistan -- A team of female Airmen [sic] made history here March 30 when the F-15E Strike Eagles of "Dudette 07" blazed down the runway to provide close air support for coalition and Afghan ground forces.

The two-ship formation consisted of all females, two pilots and two weapons system officers, but more importantly, it marked the first combat mission flown from Bagram to be planned, maintained and flown entirely by females.
