First Vietnamese student graduates from U.S. Aviation Leadership Program

Capt. Toai Dang , from Vietnam Air Defense-Air Force, breaks his first set of wings following a graduation ceremony May 30, 2019, at Columbus Air Force Base, Miss. Dang became the first Vietnamese student to graduate the Aviation Leadership Program May 30. The wings are broken in half as a tradition of good luck; the pilot keeps half while the other is given to a loved one and the two halves are not joined together until the pilot’s death.
