This was our "mother" helping us get in and out of seat belts, parachute straps, oxygen mask setups and prevented one "Schmoe" from releasing the "T" ring on his parachute, which for all practical purposes would have opened his chute in the plane. She also picked out some tunes for all too hear in our intercom, after our mission was completed and headed back to base. I don't think I will ever hear Don McClen's, "American Pie" the same way ever again. She was great. Her real name is Schera Bowden, but we knew her as "Charlie". She normally is the electronic warfare officer on board... when not catering to our "comforts!"By the way, Schera, pink is a nice color when juxtaposed to camo!
