First US Air Force female superintendent

August 13, 2013

USA/

US Air Force was notorious for leaving females behind. It took decades for women pilots to join the ranks and only recently the World War II female aviators were acknowledged.  On Monday however, the first woman took command of the U.S. Air Force Academy.

Lieutenant General Michelle Johnson is now at the helm of 59-year-old military school in Colorado. Michelle is not only a command pilot with more than 3,600 flight hours and former professor of political science at the Academy, but also a holder of Masters from Oxford University and an excellent basketball player.
