Sub Lieutenant Shivangi takes a walk about a white Dornier 228 twin-turboprop aircraft of the India Navy during a mandatory pre-flight check. Satisfied with her observation, she climbs into the cockpit of the aircraft used by the Navy for general utility and surveillance operations before she fires up the instrument. Sub Lt Shivangi, 24, has made history - she is the first woman pilot of the Indian Navy. She earned her 'Wings' at a ceremony at INS Garuda in Kochi on Monday. Trained to fly the Dornier 228 by the Indian Naval Air Squadron (INAS) 550, the oldest such squadron in the Navy, Sub Lt Shivangi said, "I cannot express my happiness in words."
