Unbelievable. But true - and a true American hero.
You go girl
Yeah, no. I hated Chinooks. You can't see out, you can't get out, and you can't shoot out. Also as a troop carrier, they take a lot of people along for the ride when they go down. Here's the story of "the one that went inverted". Scroll all the way down for the Flight Fax article about the inverted incident.https://chinook-helicopter.com/history/aircraft/D_Models/84-24156/84-24156.html#:~:text=Boeing%20CH-47D%20Chinook%20helicopter%2084-24156%20-%20the%20one,model%20kit%20number%20M3060%2C%20was%20a%20CH-47D%20helicopter.The link is pretty long; if it doesn't go "hot" just do a web search for "chinook the one that went inverted" and it should come up for you.
Outstanding! Thankfully some of America's youth are courageously fighting fires not cowardly starting them.
A prayer for this young woman who braves the fires of hell. My God watch over you Ashli and bring you home safe from all your sorties.
This is nice, but no 19 year old has the experience and judgement needed for some of the situations she might find herself in. I couldn't approve of it.
19 years old pilots did pretty well in WW2...
She's the daughter of perhaps the most experienced firefighting helo pilot in the country.
Has to be a contractor/vendor, definitely not a US Army pilot or helicopter. Kudos nonetheless and I hope her total hours were intense and tailored to this niche mission.
When using proper English language, as opposed to constantly perpetuating the Communist evils of "Politically Correct" misnomers, she is not a "HERO", but a "HEROINE".
Sounds like helicopters were a family business, that explains how she has the experience at 19."Hero" is an overused word these days, just doing your job is just doing your job... the "hero" comes in when you are called upon to go that extra step.
Good for her. Who is it saying that family isn't important in our modern world? The people setting the fires, when one comes down to it.
I'm the only person left in this country that is NOT a hero.
