Kathy and I became friends 18 years ago, when we were both flying the Boeing 747 at Northwest Airlines. Until I read her book, I had forgotten that Kathy learned to fly when she was only sixteen. But the stories she shared of the Northwest days brought back many memories.
It was a fun read about what it took for her to get to the captain’s seat of the 747, but she had her share of problems along the way. Kathy was hired by the Northwest Airlines in 1981, and at the time Northwest had a strong military presence and was extremely unwelcoming to women pilots. She put up with a lot in those days, and her sense of humor helped her soar through a wonderful career.
