I am Caroline Jensen. Sister. Daughter. Wife. Mom. Fighter Pilot. THUNDERBIRD #3.
I am also known as Three, Right Wing, Major Jensen and Blaze. As a Diamond pilot I fly as close as 18 inches from the Thunderbird Lead, from 450 knots to 150 knots and back. We can pull up to 9 G's and fly as low as 300' above the ground. I have been in the Air Force for 15 years after graduating from the Air Force Academy (go Falcons!) with a Bachelor of Science in English (go Literature!). I am the first female Reserve Officer to fly for the team, as well as the first mom to fly for the team. I am currently the only woman officer on the team. I grew up in Wisconsin and have been all over the world with the Air Force including the US, Korea and Iraq. I love to spend time with my family, swim, run, lift weights, travel and shop (I'll buy almost anything with airplanes on it). I make a mean chocolate chip cookie. I love to laugh and long walks on the beach. Can't wait to hear from you.... Ask Me Anything.
