An Endorsement From Heather Penney

After a recent visit to Wings of the North for our Girls Fly Boldly event, Heather “Lucky” Penney had this to say about our museum.  Heather is best known for her role as a USAF lieutenant who was one of two pilots ordered to ram and down United Airlines Flight 93 before it reached Washington, DC, during the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
