Watch out, ISIS. Major Mariam Al Mansouri is coming for you!
From The National:
A graduate of Khalifa bin Zayed Air College in 2007, the Major is now a veteran operations pilot, working with F-16 Block 60 aircraft.
As for being in competition with her male counterparts, the Major said this was never an issue, saying she “focused on competing with herself to improve her skills”.
“Competing with oneself,” she told the magazine, “is conducive to continued learning.”
Indeed. And the icing on the cake?
