    One of five videos featuring the first Air Force Female Navigators.

    In 1975, then-Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David C. Jones, announced the launch of a test program that would enable women to enter pilot and navigator training. In March of 1977 the first six women attended Undergraduate Navigator Training at Mather AFB, California. Five of the first six women graduated from UNT on October 12, 1977 with the class of 78-01, becoming the first female navigators.

    This video was created to celebrate overcoming gender and race barriers in the USAF exactly 45 years since the first female class of navigators began their training.
