Anne Murphy, Fighter Pilot

On September 18, 2009 Anne flew a World War II era Italian fighter trainer plane.

Anne was in six "dog fights" with another woman pilot. They each won 3. You would try to get the other in your "sights"  going high or low and trying to get behind the other and then shot imaginery bullets, and if you made "contact"(probably laser), a little white smoke would come out of the other plane.

Here are some of the photos from getting ready through takeoff, then after she has returned. (There is also a DVD of her actually flying)
