Major Heather "Lucky" Penney

And one of the bravest of them all. Look her up if you don't know who she is.

I did and quite an amazing thing she was asked to do.

Heather "Lucky" Penney-García is an Air Force pilot who, The Washington Post reported on the 10th anniversary of 9/11, was one of two ordered to ram and down United Airlines Flight 93 before it reached Washington DC during the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. A literature major at Purdue University, Maj. Penney, who was a lieutenant at the time, was reportedly ordered into the air in her F-16 fighter jet alongside Marc H. Sasseville's aircraft at Andrews Air Force Base as the terrorist attacks were unfolding on September 11, 2001. They were ordered to down flight United 93 before it reached Washington DC's airspace, but because of the urgency there was not time to outfit their aircraft with live ammunition. The mission could only have been accomplished by ramming the plane with their respective fighter jets. The passengers of Flight 93 subsequently took control of the aircraft, which then crashed, thus ending the mission. This version of events has been questioned in part because the 9/11 Commission Report made the determination that Flight 93 was not a known threat at the time.[1] Major Penney currently works for Lockheed on the F-35 project.

Yes(si) they are cadets at the Naval Academy.

Thank you Miragedriver my friend, over here we call them Midshipmen for the Naval student officers including the Coast Guards. The term cadets are for the Army and Air Force student officers. Besides the Academy of all the major branches in the US the students could also go through the R.O.T.C. program of their colleges or Officers Candidate School after college graduation.
