The US Navy's Air Test Center, which tests helicopters and drones for the Navy and Marine Corps, has been led by a woman for the first time in history, according to the Navy Times.

She was the commander of the EA-6B Prowler and EA-18G Growler aircraft, Captain Elizabeth Somerville, who participated in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom. The previous commander of the center, Colonel Richard Marigliano, retired.

The test wing is based at Naval Air Station Patuxent River in Maryland. According to the service, the command of the center is "the most technically diverse air wing in naval aviation" and consists of four squadrons.
