Female B-2 Stealth Bomber Pilots?

Post by moonstone_laura » Mon Oct 28, 2019 2:27 pm

Hi,

I'll post this in the Newbie section because I've just joined and it might be a daft question, but are there (or have there been) any female B-2 Stealth Bomber pilots?

Certainly a female voice on at least one occasion heard on the scanner during the recent B-2 TDY at Fairford.

Definitely one lady driver over here when they deployed in August 2008 - still have the photos of 'Skyking Comms' with her

There was at least one during the deployment earlier this year at Fairford. Just looked at the photo I have of her and think her name tag reads 'Kolod', her nickname. From memory I think she said she was an ex-KC-135 driver
