Female Helmets

Description: In 1974 the U.S. Navy designated its first female naval aviators, four of whom posed for a photograph during their flight instruction. Pictured left to right are Ensign Rosemary Conaster, Ensign Jane Skiles, Lieutenant (junior grade) Barbara Allen, and Lieutenant (junior grade) Judith Neuffer. Allen, the first to receive her wings, was killed in a training accident in 1982, the other three officers pictured eventually retiring as captains.
