Note: Tammie Jo Shults reportedly was the first woman to fly an F/A-18 Hornet in the US Navy.
Former Navy flyer Tammie Jo Shults and her co-pilot Darren Ellisor sat with ABC’s Martha Raddatz for their first interview since last month’s in-flight ordeal.
They were cruising at 30,000 feet when the left engine blew apart. Debris flew into a window, and passenger Jennifer Riordan was sucked halfway out.
It was so loud in the cockpit, the pilots said they couldn’t hear each other. And yet, in all that chaos, they showed the right stuff and kept their cool. – Inside Edition
