Lt. j.g. Madeline Swegle made history by becoming the U.S. Navy’s first Black female tactical fighter pilot.
The chief of Naval Air Training congratulated Swegle Thursday on Facebook for completing her training and said she will receive her “Wings of Gold” this month.
“BZ to Lt. j.g. Madeline Swegle on completing the Tactical Air (Strike) aviator syllabus,” the post read, using the abbreviation for Bravo Zulu, which means “well done.”
