First Station Media, the 2019 Milwaukee Air & Water Show’s Official Branding Partner, is thrilled to present the following profile of the United States Air Force’s newest pilot, Wisconsin native Michelle Curran. The first woman assigned to fly in the 355th Fighter Squadron, Curran is slated to perform in her home state at the 2019 Milwaukee Air & Water Show, July 27th – 28th. Curran originally hails from Medford, WI, where a childhood spent outdoors inspired her pursuits and ambitions. She cites her father as her biggest inspiration, perhaps because he’s “a thrill seeker…I like to think I take after him,” Curran said in an interview with the U.S. Department of Defense. Curran’s call sign is “Mace” and she flies Thunderbird No. 6 as an Opposing Solo Pilot. “I can’t say enough about her,” said Paul Rogers, Founder & President of the Milwaukee Air and Water Show. “She’s an incredible addition to the Thunderbirds’ already-talented team. It’s just a bonus that she’s also from Wisconsin.” Creative Director & Owner of First Station Media Lena Levy added: “The Solo pilots are selected for their accuracy, precision, and control. Captain Curran comes from a long line of military service, but what I think really makes her unique is this incredible platform she’s earned for herself.” This summer’s show, featuring the Air Force’s Thunderbirds, including a special performance with Michelle Curran, is expected to attract record crowds; attendees are encouraged to purchase tickets early to avoid delays on the days of the show: Sponsorship opportunities at every price point are also available. Media mentions by the Milwaukee Business Journal and exposure to First Station Media’s online following guarantee sponsorships will deliver on brand exposure to a broad and valuable audience.
