    "IAF to Have Women Fighter Pilots; No-Child Condition Applies"

    First female helicopter crew takes on Taliban

    From left: Stephanie Cole, Michelle Goodman, Joanna Watkinson and Wendy Donald at their US training base


    THE RAF is to fly its first all-woman combat helicopter crew into action in southern Afghanistan.

    The four women are expected to fly a number of missions taking troops and supplies to the frontline against the Taliban in Helmand. They will also airlift casualties to the hospital at Camp Bastion.

    The Merlin crew includes Flight-Lieutenant Michelle Goodman, 32, from Bristol, the first woman to win the Distinguished Flying Cross. She and her co-pilot, Flight-Lieutenant Joanna Watkinson, 28, from Reading, have been preparing in California for the difficulties of flying in Afghanistan. The hot air, dust and high altitude pose particular problems for helicopters.

    Loadmasters Sergeant Stephanie Cole, 24, from Wiltshire, and Sergeant Wendy Donald, 31, from Liverpool, have also been training at the US airbase at El Centro.

    Alongside their main role of ensuring that the troops and supplies are properly loaded on board, they will man its 7.62mm machineguns.

    All four would have expected tours of duty in Afghanistan at some stage in their careers. It is coincidence that a full complement of female helicopter crew will, for the first time, be in Helmand simultaneously.

    Goodman and Watkinson have been training in evasive flying to avoid Taliban missiles while Cole and Donald practised their gunnery skills. All four women are aware that they might be shot down or forced to ditch the aircraft in hostile territory and have prepared for the possibility.

    Goodman, a veteran of four Iraq tours, said: “Obviously we always bear it in mind but when you’re in the middle of a dangerous sortie you just get on with your job.

    “If we thought about the threat continually we would never be able to do our jobs. It’s only when we compare notes during the de-brief that you know the full extent of what happened on a dangerous mission.”

    Goodman won her DFC in 2008 for the night rescue of a soldier wounded by mortar fire in Iraq. She said she was expecting some “banter” from the infantry about female aircrew picking them up.

    Watkinson’s husband is an RAF navigator. Her grandfather was an RAF pilot and her grandmother was one of the first women to be commissioned into the army.

    “When I was younger, I always just thought that it was one of those make-believe dreams that you could one day be a pilot,” she said.

    “There will be people that will always turn round and say, ‘Oh, you can’t do that, you’re a girl’. I’ve had a few people tell me that in the past and I’d like to see them one day and go, ‘hah, told you’.”

    (No, zipped up flight suit, plus helmet with visor down, aren't very fascinating, IMO. (And no, I don't have much of what one would call "a sense of humour".))
    Really? We'd never have noticed if you hadn't told us!

    I guess that's fair enough considering the finacial investment in their training

    At Dyess AFB in 2000, they formed an all-female B-1B crew for a special flyby at the dedication of a monument for a WASP ferry pilot killed in a WWII accident near the base.

    There were several female crew mewmbers, as both pilots and "backseaters".
    There are two sides to every story. The truth is usually somewhere between the two.

    LCol Carmichael is not the 'BOSS' - aka 'Snowbird 1' - as some may conclude... she is the Commanding Officer of 431 Squadron which is much larger than the Snowbirds display team.

    "Legacy of WWII women pilots finally takes wing"

    Saturday, 22 May 2010 14:00
    Written by Joan Lownds

    On the icy Thanksgiving morning of Nov. 23, 1943, Hazel Ah Ying Lee, a Women Airforce Service Pilot (WASP), attempted a landing of the new bomber she was test-flying solo to Great Falls, Mont. She collided with another pilot flying too close because he didn't have his radio on, and both planes exploded into flames. Ms. Lee, 32, one of the 1,074 elite “flygirls” in the pioneering program, was killed in the crash.

    Er, yeah, Ainsley Earhardt is pretty hot, but she is not a military pilot. She got a ride in the back seat of a Thunderbirds F-16, same as lots of other reporters.

    She sure looks cute in that flightsuit though.

    Agreed.

    1st female fighter pilot chosen to command wing

    Col. Dawn Dunlop, the first woman to fly the F-22 Raptor, will soon achieve another milestone when she becomes the first female fighter test pilot to lead an Air Force wing.

    Dunlop is set to take command of the 412th Test Wing at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., on June 4.

    A 1988 Air Force Academy graduate, Dunlop began her aviation career as a T-38 Talon instructor pilot and was among the first women flying Air Force fighters once the ban on female fighter pilots was lifted in 1993.

    After flying operational F-15E Strike Eagles for 2 1/2 years, she was accepted into the Air Force Test Pilot School at Edwards in 1997 and began flying F-15 tests mission the following year.
