Lt. Col. Mukay in command of the C-130 crossed the world's largest ocean starting from Tucson, Arizona to Manila.

"It is flattering that the command allowed me. There are no restrictions for females. As long as you are qualified, you can become a pilot-in-command of any aircraft," Mukay said during an interview.
