In the early days of the Fighter Mafia and the first generation of new E-M fighter development, systems designers realized that lights, bells, and whistles simply weren’t immediate enough to give pilots urgent information that they needed while aloft in the battlespace. Engineers realized that spoken annunciations were necessary, especially for urgent or dangerous conditions like terrain proximity.
The very first voice digitized for use in fighter cockpits was that of actress Kim Crow and the voice soon became known, loved, and hated as “Bitching Betty.”
Kim spent an hour talking with Airspeed about being Betty, from the very first Betty sessions in a conference room and later in a studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Betty evolved with different platforms and conflicts and Kim was there at the mic and breathed life into this icon of aviation throughout Betty’s early history. Betty has been a constant companion to pilots in many airframes in many conflicts and has even likely been the last voice that some pilots have ever heard.
There have since been other Bitching Bettys and Betty has even been joined by Nagging Norah (UK), Hank the Yank (Australia), and others. But, for many pilots, Kim will always be the one and only Bitching Betty.
This is a very special episode and we still can’t quite believe that we get to bring it to you."

Marielle Saint-Juste fought her own fears as she entered the prison of Louis XIII that housed her wounded brother. Her chestnut hair was disguised and her silver coins lay in the palm of an old jailer. But when the key turned in the lock and her eyes searched the dark confines of the cell, Marielle saw only the stranger who was her destiny. ©1982 Sylvia Baumgarten (P)2013 Audible, Inc.
