What a great life story.
The article says her last flight was on a 727, AS doesn't have anymore, or do they?
Best of luck to her.

I believe it was a 737. Check out the archived MP3 from here

http://www.liveatc.net/forum/about1427.html

or just call it up from 1 FEB, KSEA TWR, 1430-1500....it's a good listen.

cheers.
Ok, wait for the RJ to pass, cleared to push tail south Mike, and you're cleared to spin #2 in the push.

The Times article contains a few errors .... according to this article, she flew the MD-80 ..

The cockpit in the picture is an MD80, I guess the author just assumed she was still flying the 727.

Congratulations to her!

Saw the first female pilot on a FX flight and I've been working at FX since 12 Dec 2003. She was a DC10 first officer. She was really nice, walked around the a/c after it landed. She was giving out candy to all the rampers unloading the plane.
