Women Pilot Firsts, Immortalized at YouTube

Periodically, I visit YouTube and do a search on "women pilots" to see if any new videos have been uploaded.

Here's a selection of videos that I found today. (Some of which I may have shared before, actually, but they're still worth watching!)

The description of this video doesn't even mention who the woman pilot is, but it's Svetlana Kapanina.


I've shared this video before. The first four Pakistani women military pilots:
Saba Khan, Nadia Gul, Mariam Khalil and Saira Batool

Interview with the first woman pilot of Iran "Akram Monfared Arya" at radio Pejvak. It's in Iranian, but illustrated with a variety of photos.
