She's Got Moxxie - Capt. Katie Higgins
69 years after the creation of the Navy's Blue Angels, we have our first female aviator on the team. Meet Marine Corp Captain Katie Higgins. Capt. Higgins believes that having a woman in the cockpit shows to little girls and boys alike, that you can achieve anything you put your mind to.
Higgins flies just like any other pilot. Capt. Higgins flies the Angels' C-130, affectionately named "Fat Albert".
When asked if people knew that there was a woman in the cockpit, Capt. Higgins replied, "Well, honestly, I would tell 'em to watch the demo," Higgins said. "They can't tell the difference between mine and the other two pilots on here because I fly it just as well as they do."
Well done, Capt. Katie Higgins. What an inspiration.
