Pilot for a Day

Posted by hearts4kyra on July 19, 2010 at 6:12 PM

Tom Cruise step aside!  Pilot Kyra "Princess" Furukawa got her wings and clearance to fly as an honorary member of the 535 Airlift Squadron stationed at Hickam AFB on Friday July 16, 2010.  From a flight suit just her size (with all the patches), to a tour of the MWD (Military Working Dogs) kennels and facilities, wearing night vision goggles, sitting in the cockpit of a C-17 and working the rear bay ramp, to flying over Honolulu in a simulator and meeting the Commander.  What an experience.  So much thanks to Patty at Occupational Therapy and Lt. Chris for all that they did to make this such a memorable event.
