On March 27th, The MS Bullet Team announced a "First Flight" target date of Saturday, October 14th, 2006. That date, the test flights to follow, and the organization leading to the completion of the Re-Creation process, will mark the beginning of the Programs for which Mary and the MS Bullet are so well qualified:
a 3 year nationwide tour to create and enhance interest among young ladies in pursuing a career in engineering.
With participation from major universities, a select group of corporate partners, and national and regional media, Mary and the Bullet will appear:
at airports where elementary, middle, and high school students and faculty will meet with Mary and learn of the history and re-creation of The Bullet, and of the many different engineering areas that came together to assure the success of the Project;
at Corporate and University events to support our partners;
at sporting events and trade shows to create further interest in engineering and aviation; and
at various aviation events where scheduling permits.
Appearances will be supported by a mobile display vehicle featuring the Bullet Re-Creation, the history and important contributions and accomplishments of women in aviation, and the future for those interested in engineering carreers.
