Women in Aviation Month

There have been many accomplishments of women in aviation from Amelia Earhart, to the WASP in WWII, and through modern day. For Women in Aviation Month I figured I would share the story of Lt. Kara Hultgreen call sign ‘Revlon’. She was the first female naval carrier based pilot. She was killed in her F-14A Tomcat BuNo 160390 in an accident while attempting to land on the USS Abraham Lincoln CVN-72 on October 25, 1994.

  1. I found this to be a great story. I had not heard of her and am sad to see that she has passed, but it is important to highlight the door that she opened for many. Thank you for sharing.
