Pilot celebrates at her graduation as the first black female tactical jet pilot in US Navy history. by gangbangkang in pics

Navy jet guy here... I don't know 100% whether or not she is the first black female fighter jet pilot here in the US Navy, but I can definitely confirm she was scheduled for her last flight today (July 7th).

For those wondering...

LTJG = Lieutenant Junior Grade, which is the Navy O-2 rank. Equivalent is 1st Lieutenant in the Army, Air Force, and Marines.

She is in VT-21 'Redhawks' which is at NAS Kingsville. That jet is the T-45C Goshawk, which is a trainer jet for students who have been selected to go Jets (or E-2/C-2).

She is wearing her soft wings in this photo, signifying that she completed her undergraduate pilot training - she will be officially winged on some other day.

After this, she will find out where she is going - whether it is to fly the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, EA-18G Growler, or F-35C Lightning II (unless she had selected E-2/C-2 before this out of Primary Flight Training, then she will go that route).

Either way, congrats to LTJG Swegle! The hard part is just getting started. Enjoy the RAG and the fleet!

edit: saw her last flight was in the strike/fighter syllabus, so she's definitely going some flavor of F/A-18E/F, EA-18G, or F-35C.

Yeah the difference between them though is Biden has a diagnosed stutter. However, both parties could have gone with much better candidates.

He is all of those things when he reads from a script. You can tell when he is because he also struggles to pronounce words.

Seems to me that most people probably understand that there is some risk that this is fake. There is a chance this is real. If so, it’s worth sending a positive message. What’s the risk? You get lied to and a liar gets reddit upvotes and internet awards. And then what? Nothing.

I hole-hardedly agree, but allow me to play doubles advocate here for a moment. For all intensive purposes I think you are wrong. In an age where false morals are a diamond dozen, true virtues are a blessing in the skies. We often put our false morality on a petal stool like a bunch of pre-Madonnas, but you all seem to be taking something very valuable for granite. So I ask of you to mustard up all the strength you can because it is a doggy dog world out there. Although there is some merit to what you are saying it seems like you have a huge ship on your shoulder. In your argument you seem to throw everything in but the kids Nsync, and even though you are having a feel day with this I am here to bring you back into reality. I have a sick sense when it comes to these types of things. It is almost spooky, because I cannot turn a blonde eye to these glaring flaws in your rhetoric. I have zero taller ants when it comes to people spouting out hate in the name of more all righteousness. You just need to remember what comes around is all around, and when supply and command fails you will be the first to go. Make my words, when you get down to brass stacks it doesn't take rocket appliances to get two birds stoned at once. It's clear who makes the pants in this relationship, and sometimes you just have to swallow your prize and accept the facts. You might have to come to this conclusion through denial and error but I swear on my mother's mating name that when you put the petal to the medal you will pass with flying carpets like it’s a peach of cake.

Fucking idiot. I'm seeing so much of this 'all lives matter' accusation. You're just using it as fucking leverage for your non arguments.

When people say 'All lives matter', they are saying the blm movement isnt needed.

When people state that whats happening with the Chinese govt isn't unique, they're not saying that its not happening

edit: thanks friend! First gold :)
