Pakistan’s First Women Air Force Pilots Take to the Sky

via news.bbc.co.uk

The Pakistan Air Force (PAF) academy has been all-male for more than 55 years – but now it is going through major change. Women are now allowed to enrol on its aerospace engineering and fighter pilot programmes and are doing rather well. Male cadets are having to come to terms with the fact that masculinity itself is no longer a condition for reaching this prestigious institute. To the great surprise of many men, some of the female recruits will soon start flying jet-engine planes.
