Girls World Expo shared A Mighty Girl's photo. ...

Captain Katie Higgins is flying into history this weekend as she takes to the skies as the first female pilot in the 69 year history of the Blue Angels! At the Beaufort Air Show in South Carolina, she will fly publicly for the first time as an official member of the US Navy's elite flight squadron which performs spectacular air demonstrations for 11 million spectators each year. For the Maryland native, being an aviation trailblazer and role model is an honor: "if that is inspiring to people, if that's inspiring to little girls around the country, then I'm doing my job." A Marine Corps Captain and Naval Academy graduate, Higgins is a third-generation military aviator whose inspiration to fly first came from her father who was an F-18 Hornet pilot. She's excited about the prospect of inspiring the next generation: "I think by including a lady on the team, that just shows little girls and guys that women can do whatever they put their mind to. Little girls have told me that they didn't even know that ladies could fly aircraft, that women could be in the cockpit." Now with Captain Higgins in the pilot seat and performing the famous Blue Angels flying maneuvers, Mighty Girls everywhere will see that there are no limits to their dreams of flying high!
