Bermuda’s first woman to drive the push back at the new LF Wade International Airport was recently featured in the most recent episode of ‘Taking Off’ in Skyport’s new series ‘Inside LF Wade’.

Host Mikaela Ian Pearman features Jalicia Crockwell, a ramp supervisor with Menzies Aviation, who is currently the only woman who “pushes the air crafts back from the gate before they take off”.

The young Bermudian started in 2017 as a part time cleaner and worked her way up to the ramp “with the boys” the following year, where she has been ever since.

Have a look at the clip to hear how she ultimately volunteered and stepped up to the challenge of the position.
