CombatACE Interview with Leslie "Bitchin' Betty" Shook

RS6yYX1.jpg

 

Pull up! Pull up! is a command many of us may be familiar with while using Strike Fighters or DCS simulators. But there are some here at CombatACE who may have heard the real thing. That automated voice is usually referred to as Bitchin' Betty. There are; however, several variants of the automated warning voice. Some call it Barking Bob, Naging Nora, and a few refer to the voice as Sonya, as in gets on ya nerves. Our spotlight; however, will be shining on Leslie Shook, the Bitchin' Betty, for the F-18 Hornets and Super Hornets.
 
We got in touch with the Boeing Corporation who gladly helped us to set up this interview, with Mrs. Shook.We sent her a list of questions and she took the time to record her responses. The original video is quite lengthy, which is why we've included a 2 minute version that simply goes over the highlights. Lastly there is a bonus feature. Deleted scenes set to a lovely song performed by Jenny's Vision Project. All of the aircraft featured are products of the Boeing Corporation.
 
It is now our pleasure to present this special CombatACE interview with a wonderful woman who has an amazing story to tell.

What was Boeing's reaction that a simulation site contacted them? I'm just curious. Falcon

 

They got back in touch with us very quickly. I was promptly connected with Leslie's representative (mentioned in the end credits of full version). Boeing is truly a professional company. Most folks wouldn't give us the time or day. Honestly I thought Boeing wouldn't even reply. I sent the query and a few hours later had several department heads emailing us back. Boeing Corporation is truly a professional company and if they can give CombatACE, this humble site of ours, the amount of respect and courtesy they have. Then you know they'll take care of their customers.

 

Also I mentioned a new series that is in the works. Some department heads are willing to work with us on that too. So stay tuned to CombatACE for more aviation based videos.

 

I'd love to tell you more about them ... but then I'd have to kill you...unless you're on the writing staff...but then you'd have to bring the snacks.
