Rivkah   (01.11.11)
not strong enough to carry a toolbox, so the toolboxes had to be put on wheels to accomodate them. Russian in World War II had all women squadrons with female pilots, female navigators, female mechanics for aircraft. That worked better for the entire team to be female with male teams being entirely male. Lili Lutvak was an ace Russian pilot in WWII.
