Blogging In Formation is at it again. Our theme this month is in honor of Aviation History Month. And what a great month this will be.
At age 27, this OV-10 Bronco pilot was the most decorated female pilot in the Philippine Air Force, and one of only six combat-qualified. On a rainy day in March 26, 2001, she did something so remarkable, that she became the only female to ever receive her nation’s highest military honor: The Medal of Valor. The local town dedicated a street to her, and her home town erected a statue.
She is revered by Filipinos as a national hero!
Who is she and what did she do?
Take a guess at who she is and what she did, and then head on over to the Adventures of Adventures of Cap’n Aux to find the answer.
Return with the answer, or any trivia, about this amazing woman and you will be entered into a Flight For Control hardback give away. If you have already read it and win, I can autograph the copy for a friend.
Then keep your eyes open for more Aviation History to come your way.
