First woman to pilot a 747

This is like a protocol romance story. Kinda heartwarming, with many protocol elements.

  1. They kept the first flight with 2 women pilots secret because they’d made up a rule that you had to have a man in the cockpit and it took scheduling craziness to prevent it

  2. They thought a woman couldn’t fly a 747 because she wouldn’t have the strength to push the rudder down if 2 engines on one side failed
