VIDEO: COME FROM AWAY's Rachel Tucker and Captain Beverley Bass Stop By The Tamron Hall Show

Tucker portrays Bass in the musical, whose trailblazing career as a pilot has helped countless women break into the aviation workforce.

The Tamron Hall Show welcomed Olivier Award- nominee Rachel Tucker and her character inspiration, Captain Beverley Bass, for a special episode dedicated to "firsts," which featured an interview with the pioneering pilot and a performance of "Me and the Sky" from Broadway's COME FROM AWAY.

Almost four decades ago, Beverley Bass became the first female captain of a commercial plane at American Airlines. Around the same time, she also captained the first all-female crew in the history of commercial jet aviation. Her trailblazing career has helped countless women break into the aviation workforce.

On September 12, their stories moved us all.
