Welcome to another episode of the Lessons from the Cockpit show!
On today’s show, our guest Lieutenant Colonel (retired) Mo Barrett fights for centerline deciding to fly a very big airlifter or deploy with her Tanker Airlift Control Element (TALCE) team opening airfields for war in Afghanistan on 9/11. Her team makes two large Forward Operation Bases livable and operable with hours and had a unique way of evolving a place to go potty. Something simple every pilot carries on them becomes a tool for democracy and brings a smile to kids’ faces as Mo flies the big C-5 Galaxy cargo plane. Women have been flying in our Air Force for decades, but an Ecuadorian Mayor never got that memo.
Special thanks to Mo Barrett and her book Pardon my Quirks for sponsoring this episode of Lessons from the Cockpit.
Enjoy how to laugh, learn and think about our human quirkiness with Mo as your keynote speaker. Contact and schedule Mo via her website at Mo Barrett.
Several airlift aircraft are available to buy at Wall Pilot, custom aviation art for the walls of your home, office, or hanger.
