Lt. Col. "Jackie" Parker, USAF First female Air Force test pilot The adopted daughter of Dale & Boots Parker, Jackie Parker attended the University of Central Florida, majoring in mathematics and computer science. She graduated from college at age 17, the youngest graduate in the school's history. Jackie became an intern at NASA's Johnson Space Center, and was responsible for analysis of onboard computer systems. She was the youngest flight controller in NASA's history. After completing Officer Training School in 1980, she entered pilot training at Reese Air Force Base. She was Reese AFB's first T-38 instructor pilot and the first female graduate of the USAF Test Pilot School. Parker is the first woman in the United States to be assigned to an F-16 fighter squadron. Before setting out on a career of female firsts, Parker spent her earlier years being the youngest. This designation goes back to her birth as the youngest of five sisters. At age fourteen, she was the youngest student to attend the University of Central Florida and then, at seventeen, the youngest graduate. She took her bachelor's degree in computer science to NASA where she became the agency's youngest space flight controller. She was the Air Force's youngest instructor pilot for the T-38 and for the C-141. Parker has accumulated over 3,000 flying hours in over twenty-five types of aircraft, including the F-16, F-111, F-4, A-7, C-130, C-141, KC-135, T-38, OH-58, and UH-60. After KC-135 Aircraft Commander School at Castle AFB, California, she was assigned to the 4952nd Test Squadron of the 4950th Test Wing at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio, where she was program manager and test pilot for the T-38 head-up display program. She was also program manager and test pilot for the testing of the C-27. She was elected as outstanding T-38 academic instructor at Reese five times. She received the Air Force Commendation Medal in 1985 and 1988 and the Meritorious Service Medal in 1993. She was one of two female F-16 pilots flying for "The Boys from Syracuse," the 138th Fighter Squadron of the 174th Fighter Wing of the New York ANG. Currently resides in Moss Bay, CA.

Beulah Farthing "Boots" Parker (1929 – 2008)

Custodial History.

The collection was purchased from the Parkers by a member of the museum's board and loaned to the museum in 2004. The owner of the collection is slowly donating parts of the collection at a time so the collection is currently still stored in its original shipping containers. Once the whole collection has been donated it will be rehoused.
