Now comes the wait for the feminists to complain about the title 'Aircrewman'.

I doubt it, no-one's been bothered about the title Naval Airman for God knows how any years.

Not strictly true.

The branch has had female aircremen for at least 20 years and she is actually the second RN SAR female aircrewman. The first was a decade ago on 819 NAS. (LWACMN Bernie Pope.)
I was in the same syndicate as Bernie on LRLC (Royal Arthur) back in 90, I'm sure she was starting aircrew training shortly after that?

Not many of us cewies and like me, ex crewies about so someone will remember somewhere!!!

All media are poor at their background research.
I would suspect that the media, as in most stories like this will have been passed a press release in this instance with the facts (correct or not) already in place. RN PR is pretty much run that way at all times. You write the story, they print it.
