This man's Air Force..

..ain't what it used to be:

While the C-5 was turning over its engines, a female crewman gave the G.I.s on board the usual information regarding seat belts, emergency exits, etc.

Finally, she said, "Now sit back and enjoy your trip while your captain, Judith Campbell, and crew take you safely to Afghanistan "

An old Sergeant sitting in the eighth row thought to himself, "Did I hear her right? Is the captain a woman?"

When the attendant came by he said "Did I understand you right? Is the captain a woman?"

"Yes," said the attendant, "In fact, this entire crew is female." 

"My God," he said, "I wish I had two double scotch and sodas. I don"t know what to think with only women up there in the cockpit."

"That"s another thing, Sergeant," said the crew member, "We No Longer Call It The Cockpit.."

""s The Box Office."
