The US Naval Air Training Command celebrated LTJG Madeline Swegle on Twitter for her completion of the Tactical Air (Strike) aviator syllabus. With this achievement, Swegle becomes the US Navy’s First Black Female Fighter Pilot.
BZ is short for “Bravo Zulu,” a naval term meaning “Well done.”
RDML Paula Dunn, the Navy’s Vice Chief of Information also congratulated Swegle on Twitter writing, “Very proud of LTJG Swegle. Go forth and kick butt.”
At the moment, Swegle is assigned to the Redhawks of Training Squadron (VT) 21 at Naval Air Station Kingsville in Texas.
Congratulations, LTJG Madeline Swegle!
