8th Annual Women Fly! Program Returns to The Museum of Flight for Women's History Month
Highlighting the activities is a multi-generational panel of women sharing experiences dating from the Second World War to today's exploration of Mars. Former Women Air Force Service Pilot (WASP) Dawn Seymour and former "Rosie the Riveter," Georgie Bright Kunkel, embody "the greatest generation." Today's aerospace role models are represented by Kimberly Scott, who flies for both Alaska Airlines and the USAF; and Caroline Chouinard, who was part of the all-women team that remotely "drove" NASA's Spirit rover on the planet Mars. The day's activities include tours of Boeing Field, operation of the Museum's flight simulators, airplane tours, workshops, college fair, and networking with the panel.
Over a 100 teens have already registered for the event.
