The Right Stuff: Tammie Jo Shults

Captain Shults is the pilot for Southwest Airlines that calmly landed her craft in Philadelphia after an explosive decompression on a flight from NYC to Dallas.

Unfortunately, she has had to withstand a considerable amount of sexual discrimination. There is one issue with the linked article: the description of "smoke" accompanying the explosive decompression is incorrect. It was actually cloud or, if you prefer, fog. At the bottom of the article is the audio of the flight. It is stunning: Captain Shults really does have "The Right Stuff."

I'm really looking forward to reading her book.
