All-female aircrew ready C-17 for flight
Col. Jacquelyn Marty (right), vice commander for the 349th Air Mobility Wing watches as Maj. Jami Gunnels (left) and Lt. Col Jill Sliger, 301st Airlift Squadron conduct pre-flight checks prior to take-off, onboard a U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster III prior to a training flight at Travis Air Force Base, California, April 15, 2022. The flight featured an al-female aircrew. For former pilots like soon to be retiring Marty, this was an opportunity that at one time was unheard of to fly with an all-female aircrew. "I'm thrilled and only hope as we go forward, it's not a big deal, but a natural occurrence," said Marty. Marty will soon be retiring in June after 32 years of service.
