A 5-year-old girl battling cancer achieved her dream of becoming a U.S. Air Force honorary pilot thanks to Florida’s MacDill Air Force Base and the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation.
Honorary Capt. Ever Young was given her orders to be a pilot-for-the-day from Col. Benjamin Jonsson, 6th ARW commander.
During her visit to MacDill this week, Young flew and landed a plane in a flight simulator. She also toured a KC-135 Stratotanker and the air traffic control tower.
MacDill Air Force Base is located in Tampa, Florida.
