    Would still prefer to have her on my side in a fight. Anyone good enough to fly with the Thunderbirds would be good enough for me.

    Heard they did a study some years back and figured out that the best fighter pilot (strictly from the perspective of physical makeup and nothing more) was a short, slightly overweight woman.

    Short because the blood didn't move around as much in high G manuvers, slightly overweight because people who are a bit tubby tend to have higher blood pressure and female because their reflexes are quicker.

    Actually les, that last one was stationed at Pope. The scuttlebutt is that she fragged herself being a little too close to some ordnance she dropped. There is some ground fire damage, but just small arms stuff. Yeah, good on her for flying the plane back in manual reversion, but she did it to herself.

    There are a couple of Female Pilots that I fly with in our unit and I have to admit they are damn good pilots, even went to Iraq with them and came under fire with them. Now having said that some of the worst pilots in our unit are female as well.

    just how short is she? is that plane several miles behind her or summit :lol: either way good on her i guess, although i hope women never fly with the Red Arrows, particularly as flight leader, hearing the really pompus British guy when they play his radio over the loudspeakers is one of the highlights of their display, oh yeah, they do some flying too :rolleyes:
