737 girl power

Pilot - - NOTES -

In cel­e­bra­tion of Boe­ing’s 100th an­niver­sary and Women­ven­ture 2016, Alaska Air­lines flew its new­est Boe­ing 737-900ER to EAA Air­ven­ture at Oshkosh from Seat­tle. It had an all-fe­male crew and its cabin was filled with fe­male em­ploy­ees from Alaska Air­lines, Boe­ing and Vir­gin Amer­ica, and fe­male stu­dents from Rais­beck Avi­a­tion High School in Tuk­wila, Wash­ing­ton. Among those on hand to greet them was Chris­tine Walsh, Boe­ing’s Deputy Test Pi­lot, who was tak­ing a break from her work on the cer­ti­fi­ca­tion pro­gram for the new 737 MAX.
