    Yep, that's it. I have it saved from years ago but User 912 never responded to my PM request in post #6. When I first read it years ago it struck a nerve with me. In the mid/late 80's I was at a "commuter" (as they were called then) trying hard to get the big major job. I was a Capt on the Metroliner and flew with many low time new-hires. More times than I can count they were back out the door (very often, United) while I just struggled to land an interview. I did eventually get my big job and it worked out well for me.

    P.S., UAL almost lost a 747 on takeoff from SFO after an engine failed and the female FO got within about 150' of terrain. I doubt she was military, she probably would have been a competent pilot. . . . and, no, I'm not ex-military.
    Wow! It wasn't a female FO. It was an ex military, ex TWA male FO. And yes, depending on who you ask, the 747 came within 5 to 150 feet of Mt. San Bruno. That event was so egregious United retrained the whole seniority list on non standard engine out procedures.

    Hope this helps.

    It was a military F/0 who broke the fin off the AA Airbus. That's quite a contrast to the stories that abound about civilian females.

    I think the stories about civilian females are more a testament about those that tell them than it is about civilian females.
