Honouring women in engineering - Emily Otto The Riveter
By Isabel Cutter
Koko: Hi Darling.
Koko: Just herding out visit an old friend on the air base.
Teddy: Has the navy cleared you to go and the UN?
Koko: As if I wouldn't get two pieces of paper for this convenient visit.
Teddy: Stay out of trouble!
At the Air Base
Eleanor: Morning Koko.
Koko: Morning, Eleanor Otto I presume?
Eleanor: Yes, here is a pair of roller skates.
Koko: What? At work!
Eleanor: Damn straight! I will show how a United States Airforce girl builds an aircraft. Welcome to Ryan Air & Co. I will be you 'air hostess' here in USA. We used to be Rohn Air. A set of tools and the most important tool is the riveter.
Koko: On behalf of the Royal Navy, the pleasure will be all mine to make you sea ready. Lead the way.
Eleanor: Let me show you around the sea bird.
Koko: Lead the way doll.
Eleanor: This is my main concern, the nose I need it to be steadier to take the dive in the air, the fuel line, capacitors here the fuse lodges need to be cooled down so they don't over heat.
Koko: According to the test flight analysis the temperature was a bit too high for my liking.
Ladies its going to a long day. Fuel line on the schematics map please?
Eleanor: The line runs from this point to this point. We need the work done to commercialise the flights.
Koko: Let me redraw a path for the fuel line to keep the engines efficient we will need a cooling system just under the engine. Monkey wrench please?
Eleanor: Let's rebuild this baby.
Koko: She will prrh when I am done with her. Eleanor you little riveter you do it so quickly.
Eleanor: I hope she will be able to fly more than 6 hours without refuelling.
Koko: Nearly done rewiring her.
Eleanor: I will call Christine, time to go for test flight.
Koko: Be done in 30 minutes, I will just give the engine one final check.
Christine: Leathers girls test flight.
