Harvard ROTC Aviation Award Recipient 2017: 2nd Lt. Kira Headrick (U.S. Air Force)
2nd Lt. Kira Headrick has a long-standing fascination with aeronautics and astronautics. Two summers at NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center, in addition to orientation flights in Air Force aircraft, confirmed her goal to become a pilot and astronaut. Joe Gano offered flights to her and to runner-up Ens. John Holland, and both of them flew with Joe in his L-39 Albatross "Pipsqueak" on May 14, 2017, ten days before they were commissioned.
