I MET SOME OF THE PILOTS WHO WERE AT THE “THUNDER AND LIGHTING” AIRSHOW AT DAVIS-MONTHAN AIR FORCE BASE IN MARCH. JACQUIE B IS A FEMALE PILOT WHO DECIDED AT THE AGE OF 50 TO START PERFORMING IN AIR SHOWS. HER AIRPLANE AND HER JUMPSUIT ARE BOTH BRIGHT RED. SHE SAYS SHE LOVES THE THRILL OF FLYING IN AIR SHOWS AND ENTERTAINING THE CROWD. SHE HOPES SHE IS A ROLE MODEL FOR GIRLS WHO MIGHT WANT TO WORK IN AVIATION. CAPTAIN RYAN RUTTER IS AN A-10 PILOT FROM ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO. HE IS ASSIGNED TO DAVIS-MONTHAN. HE EXPLAINED THE IMPORTANCE OF THE A-10 TO ME. THIS IS KYLEE PRESNELL FROM ALICE VAIL MIDDLE SCHOOL FOR BEAR ESSENTIAL NEWS.
