In the below video (embedded in a tweet), you’ll see/hear a historic announcement to passengers of the first Alaska Airlines flight piloted by two African-American women. From MSN, “Captain Tara Wright and First Officer Mallory Cave piloted a flight together from San Francisco to Portland on Alaska Airlines on May 13…Wright and Cave were the first all-African-American flight crew to pilot for the airline.”
Kudos to them—and hopefully, this will soon be the norm so it isn’t newsworthy.
Wait for it…
Captain Tara Wright is about to announce to Alaska Airlines passengers that they’ll be “piloted by two African American female pilots for the first time in Alaska Airlines’ history.” ✈ pic.twitter.com/PLNGbtEsPF
