A Ghanaian woman's quest to work — and fly
from Air & Space Magazine
According to author Jonathan "Capt. Yaw" Porter: "Engine failure! Engine failure!" I shouted into the radio as I pulled the power on my 80-horsepower Rotax boxer engine back to idle. We were at less than 1,000 feet, climbing from a grass strip at Kpong Airfield in Ghana, West Africa. The baobab tree below reached out its naked branches like it wanted to claw us from the sky. Kweku, the young student next to me, pushed the stick forward as he'd been trained to do.
