An Original “Rosie the Riveter” Takes to the Sky

After 68 yrs of “riveting” and receiving the 2017 Air Force Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award,  Elinor Otto flew in a C-17 she helped build on Monday, 18 Dec 2017. 

Ms. Otto joined the aerospace industry in 1942 as a single mother, when Rosie the Riveter signs inspired her and she worked until 2014, at the age of 94.

A true inspiration for us all.  #bethechange #forher #forall
