A New First! Woman Aeronautical Display Pilot!

Awesome! When I was little – of course before I understood how awful war is – I wanted to be a fighter pilot. Until my mom kindly pointed out that my eyesight (which is terrible) would mean I could only fly commerically. BORING.

So of course I thought this news item was very cool… The first woman to fly for Britain’s “Red Arrows” aeronautical display team. Imagine flying at 400 MILES an hour, 6-8 feet apart from the plane next to you…

Brains, beauty, awesome team work ¬†AND incredibly sharp reactions…
