Tammie Jo Shults has been all over the news in the past two days. And rightly so. She’s the heroic airline pilot who safely steered her damaged Southwestern flight in to land this week after the engine exploded, creating a hole in the plane. One passenger, Jennifer Riordan, sadly lost her life. But everyone else on board survived. It could very easily have ended very differently.
People have been commenting specifically on the fact that this particular hero is a woman. Yes, she’s female. She also flew fighter jets for the US Navy. She’s a highly trained, skilled pilot who obviously has nerves of steel and did her job amazingly well. She’s a true hero. We hope that girls all over the world read her story and are inspired. They too can be fighter pilots. They too can fly commercial airplanes. They too can be heroes, and save lives. 💪❤️👩✈️✈️ .
