  1. Just freaking WOW!!!

    I would've given my.... well, I would've given a LOT to be piloting rotary-wing aircraft at 19!
    Instead I was in a missile silo in beautiful Minot ND.

  3. Where the heck did she get the money to get a helicopter rating and get checked-out in a Chinook? Something is wrong here.

    1. Enlisted at 18, and showed major skill and aptitude?

    2. I know what you mean. At age 21, I had the opp to be a TO in a Mohawk for the Oregon National Guard. I passed that up, and would probably be some sort of a pilot now. Young, dumb and stupid.
      But I repeat myself.

    3. Her parents are probably wealthy. And she didn't want to play video games.

    4. Read the article. Dad is a helo pilot. Take your Daughter to Work Day sometimes has positive results.

    5. Her father & Uncle run a helicopter flying service in Montana. She's been around helos literally her entire life. She's been flying them since she was 13.
      Google 'Billings Flying Service'. They operate six Chinooks, plus a couple of Bell helos. This is quite an operation.

  5. Nice to see she's going to school across town. Interesting that she didn't choose the school's aviation program.

  8. Helo Privilege? Sad you cannot accept that some folks have skills (earned by hard work and time put in) and BRAVERY from an outstanding set of Parents and family.

    I'd be proud to call this young hero a friend.

  9. W.O.M.P.ASS

    Plank-holder in the Warrant Officers Mutual Protection Association extends an offer to miss Blain to join us!

    (Some 'activities' may require a couple-three years for this 19-year old to legally 'appreciate'.
    But the acknowledgment of finer lawful details may be somewhat missing in the original W.O.M.P.ASS charter...)
