Here’s an interesting video that reports on the retirement of “Bitchin’ Betty”. But who was she and what is her connection to aviation?
Try to answer the following questions about the video and come back on Monday for the answers.
Suggested ICAO level for video: 5+
- Who is “Bitchin’ Betty”?
- Where can she be heard?
- What are pilots’ reactions to her.
- How has she made a difference to one particular airman?
- Why did Betty make an appearance at the airbase?
Have a great weekend!!
Stern. Sharp. Bossy. All have been used to describe the voice of the Boeing F/A-18’s cockpit warning system. The pilots and technicians refer to the voice as “Bitchin’ Betty,” a time-honored tradition that is also potentially life-saving.
