ETHIOPIAN AIRLINES MADE HISTORY

Ethiopian made history last Wednesday (18th November, 2015) by sending an all-female crew on a flight from Addis Ababa to Bangkok, Thailand. 

Ethiopian Airlines CEO, Tewolde GebreMariam, spoke on the historic event saying "this is an opportunity to inspire young African female students to believe in their dreams and embark to fill the skill gap for Aviation professionals".

The flight was the first in the 70-year history of the airline in which the whole crew was female, not just the cockpit and cabin crew, it included maintenance crew members and air traffic controllers.

50 MINUTES WITH THE AIRBUS A380 - AMAZING MACHINE

The Airbus A380 is a double-deck, wide-body, four-engine jet airliner manufactured by the European aircraft company Airbus. It is the world's largest passenger airliner, and the airports at which it operates have upgraded facilities to accommodate it. It was initially named Airbus A3XX and designed to challenge Boeing's monopoly in the large-aircraft market. The A380 made its first flight on 27 April 2005 and entered commercial service in October 2007 with Singapore Airlines.

The A380's upper deck extends along the entire length of the fuselage, with a width equivalent to a wide-body aircraft. This gives the A380-800's cabin 550 square metres (5,920 sq ft) of usable floor space,[4] 40% more than the next largest airliner, the Boeing 747-8,[5] and provides seating for 525 people in a typical three-class configuration or up to 853 people in an all-economy class configuration. The A380-800 has a design range of 8,500 nautical miles (15,700 km), sufficient to fly nonstop from Dallas, USA to Sydney, Australia, and a cruising speed of Mach 0.85 (about 900 km/h, 560 mph or 490 kn at cruising altitude).

As of October 2015, Airbus had received 317 firm orders and delivered 173 aircraft; Emirates is the biggest A380 customer with 140 on order and 67 delivered

The crew managed to overcome a number of resulting failures and make an emergency landing back at Singapore. There were 469 passengers and crew on board. There were no injuries to the passengers, crew or people on the ground; debris from the aircraft fell onto the Indonesian island of Batam.

Lt. Col. Karen Fuller Brannen
Lt. Col. Karen Fuller Brannen made history on October 17, 1997, when she became the U.S. Marine Corps first female strike fighter pilot to earn "wings of gold."

Others might have been surprised, but not Brannen. She says that if you'd asked her what she wanted to be when she grew up she would have replied with, "fighter pilot." The disbelief of others spurred her on.

In the spring of her fi nal year of college, Congress passed laws that resulted in women being eligible to fly in the Marine Corps. She applied for the Corps, passed the flight physical and went to training camp.

She attended Officer Candidate School in the summer of 1994, completing her studies as an honor graduate and receiving a physical training award. She was commissioned as a second lieutenant that year. In May 1996, after primary fl ight training, she was the first female Marine to receive a jet training slot. She completed intermediate jet training at Naval Air Station Meridian, in Meridian, Mississippi, fl ying the T-2C, and then went on to fl y the TA-4J with Training Squadron 7. She was the top graduate in her class, and was then selected to fl y the F/A-18 Hornet with a West Coast squadron. From there, with the call sign Stump, she was assigned to Fleet Replacement Squadron UMFAT-101 at El Toro, California, then subsequently Miramar, California.

In 2001 then Capt. Tribbett deployed with RMFA- 242 to Iwakuni, Japan. She earned her Air Combat Tactics Instructor certifi cation at the end of that year. After a stint in Quantico, Virginia in 2002 attending Expeditionary Warfare School she was assigned as an active duty officer to Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 321 at Andrews Air Force Base. From there Maj. Tribbett was assigned to VR-1, where she flew C-37Bs, transporting the Secretary of the Navy, the Commandant of the Marine Corps and various Congressmen.

Maj. Tribbett left active duty for a job as a large cabin demonstration pilot for Gulfstream Aerospace in 2007. She remained a Marine Corps Reserve Lieutenant Colonel serving as the Officer in Charge of the Peacetime Wartime Support Team in Savannah, Georgia.

In 2010 she married Maj. Matt Brannen, a judge advocate in the Marine Corps.

What is unique about the air and space domain? Can you drive or fly faster from home to school?
Is it easier to turn around in a plane or a ship? Can you see farther from your car or from a plane? The
answer to these questions and many more tell us that the air and space domain is special and unique.
That is why we study it.

Objectives:
At the end of this section, students should be able to:
Describe what makes air power unique.
Define air and space power.
Recognize the various legends of flight.
Identify the Chinese invention that solved one of the major problems of air power.
Identify the contributions the Chinese made to advance air and space power.
Identify the significant contributions that advanced air and space power.
