Discharged female pilot enters civilian life
May 29, 1997
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Kelly Flinn, who was granted a general discharge last week from the military on charges stemming from adultery, officially became a civilian Thursday, an Air Force spokesman told CNN.
Flinn, 26, entered civilian life at midnight Thursday. She is the first female bomber pilot in U.S. history and had been a first lieutenant in the Air Force.
In a widely publicized case, Flinn was charged with adultery, disobedience, fraternization and lying to investigators. The Air Force ruled last week that she would be given a general discharge, allowing her to leave without facing a court-martial.
