Second Lt. Niloofar Rhmani was the first female to become an Afghan Air Force pilot. On Thursday, she completed her first combat mission, transporting Ministry of Defense officials from Kabul International Airport to Kandahar as part of a government outreach operation. "Before, there were no female Afghan pilots," said Rhmani. "I'm trying to change the old culture for my people and stand up for my people."
