Chinook Crew 'Chick' by Liz McConaghy
Published March 3, 2023
This is such a good book from the longest serving female Chinook crew member, chronicling how she got into the RAF, what life was like on the ground in warzones (and in the air, of course), and then the difficulties of returning to a civilian life. This is told as though you’re just sitting, chatting with a friend, finding out more about the life, but it’s eye-opening on what life is like for a female in a male-dominated world, and how difficult it is to come back from deployment to a ’normal’ life. The final chapters of the book are really harrowing but highlight something so important - the mental health of veterans.
