The first and only African American woman to fly the Air Force U-2 Aircraft, a retired Colonel with over 23 years of aviation and leadership experience in both the Navy and Air Force, Merryl knew from the age of 7 she wanted to become an astronaut.
This first part covers flying, following your dreams and culture.
Merryl created an experience almost beyond this world offering down to earth practical discussions on bringing her dream into reality. Merryl and I met instructing in the T-6 student pilot trainer at Moody AFB, GA. We recently touched base and is one of those people I rely on for grounded wisdom and lots of laughs. I hope you enjoy listening to her experiences.
