Lt. Col. Kimberly Ford, retired, Air Force, 1990-2016
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/08/magazine/women-military-stories.html
I was the first African-American woman to fly the C-17 Globemaster in the Air Force. I earned the Air Medal for support of operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, Bosnia and Kosovo. The biggest challenge I faced was being among the fewer than 1 percent of Air Force pilots who are African-American women. I had mentors from all walks of life throughout my career who have supported me and encouraged me, including Lt. Col. Bill Holloman, a member of the Tuskegee Airmen, the famed African-American aviators from World War II.

Zimbabwe air force first and only female fighter pilot Flight Lieutenant Angelina Bosha
https://www.herald.co.zw/bosha-makes-afz-history/
http://hmetro.co.zw/afz-celebrates-milestone-officer/
THE Air Force of Zimbabwe (AFZ) last Friday joined the rest of the world in celebrating International Women’s Day by acknowledging the exploits of Flight-Lieutenant Angelina Bosha, who became the first female officer to complete a fighter jet training course. The AFZ has made tremendous strides in championing the presence of women in the force to the extent that during this year’s graduation ceremony in Gweru, females outnumbered their male counterparts. After completing her studies at the end of last year in China, the 29-year-old Flt-Lt Bosha became the first and only female fighter aircraft pilot in the history of AFZ. During the course, she was the only female student of the 14 pilots from across the globe who undertook the one-year course. The course is so revered that the AFZ cannot divulge the number of fighter pilots who have undertaken the training. In outlining the importance of her achievement deputy commander of Josiah Tungamirai Airforce Base, Group Captain Ezweni Masuku lauded Flt-Lt Bosha. “Flt-Lt Bosha is the first female fighter jet pilot of the Air Force of Zimbabwe. “Before Flt-Lt Bosha we have never had a female pilot going to the fighter jets. “What has made her unique is that she has met the grade that is required of a fighter pilot. “She is not going there because of affirmative action but because she meets the required criteria for a fighter jet pilot. “As an organisation we do have programmes of addressing gender imbalances but we have also made it very clear that being a professional organisation as we are, we will not compromise the standards to further the issues of gender imbalances. “We are happy that on this day we are celebrating Women’s Day, Flt-Lt Bosha has made it into a career not that many, not only in the AFZ but the world at large, fail to make it. “The course has its own physiological challenges; I must say she is unique, she has made it and we will not look at her as a woman but we will look at her as a fighter pilot,” said Group Capt Masuku. In an interview, Flt-Lt Bosha implored all women not to expect preferential treatment but to work hard to be successful in life. “I just told myself that I can do it. The support I have been receiving from my superiors back home has been valuable and I just told myself that ‘yes I can,’ even if I was the only female. “My instructor here in Zimbabwe encouraged me to take up the course. He told me that I can do it and I just worked very hard to achieve it. “The most important thing to ladies out there is that they should not expect special treatment because there are such fields like ours where there is no separation when it comes to training. “The training is standard for both male and females so there is no special treatment,” she said.

Fighter pilot embodies ‘Captain Marvel’ spirit
22 Mar 2019 Giancarlo Casem, 412th Test Wing Public Affairs

"EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. (AFNS) -- In early February, roughly 80 female pilots gathered together on Edwards Air Force Base, California, to take part in the video filming of an Air Force Recruiting Service commercial. The commercial was made to coincide with the release of the new film “Captain Marvel,” which also involved filming at Edwards AFB....

…[Maj. Gen. Dawn Dunlop. Dunlop currently serves as the Office of the Secretary of Defense Special Access Programs director. She is also the highest ranking female fighter pilot in the Air Force today. Earlier in her career, Dunlop served as the 412th Test Wing commander, the first woman ever to command a Test Wing.] “My advice for young people: always give your best, communicate your goals and seek feedback on how to reach them, and don’t easily accept a ‘no’ answer from someone not empowered to give a ‘yes,’” Dunlop said. “I’ve had a hugely rewarding career, and if I can do it anyone can.”

Dawn Dunlop, Office of the Secretary of Defense Special Access Programs director, and Brig. Gen. Jeannie Leavitt, Air Force Recruiting Service commander, pose for a photo at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., Feb. 1, 2019. The generals were accompanied by more than 80 fellow female Airmen to film an Air Force Recruiting Service television commercial.
