1st Black Female Flight Crew

For the first time in history, a domestic US flight was staffed by an all black female flight crew. The 4 - Captain Rachelle Jones, First Officer Stephanie Grant, and flight attendants Diana Galloway and Robin Rogers were in charge. 

Atlanta Southeast Airlines President Brad Holt issued the following statement: "Not only are these women gifted in their professions, but they set examples for young people across the country that with hard work, passion and determination, the sky is the limit."  

What a way to start off Women's History Month!
