The achievement was celebrated by celebrities and politicians.
The U.S. Navy celebrated a historic moment this week as it announced Lt. j.g. Madeline Swegle was set to become its first Black female tactical fighter pilot.
Swegle has earned her wings as a U.S. Navy fighter pilot and will receive her “Wings of Gold” in late July, according to a tweet posted on Thursday by the Chief of Naval Air Training.
The Chief of Naval Air Training congratulated Swegle with a “BZ,” or “Bravo Zulu,” a naval term meaning “well done.”
