As it is International Women's Day today, here is a small post to recognise the role women are playing on the front line of the modern Luftwaffe.
Major Ulrike Fitzer was the first female fighter pilot in the German Air Force. She is the first German female Tornado pilot, having completed training in 2007 at Holloman Air Force Base.
Major Nicola Baumann became second female fighter pilot in the history of the German Air Force in 2007 flying both Tornado and Eurofighter Typhoon in Luftwaffe.
