Prince William’s RAF base ‘mate’ will soon be a ‘ladette’ after sex change op!April 23rd, 2010 - 1:12 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr 23(ANI): Prince William’s Royal Air Force (RAF) base is set to get a ‘new’ woman helicopter pilot after one of the airmen told his colleagues that he is having a sex swap.
Flight Lieutenant Ian Holdom, who is one the pilots of 22 Squadron C Flight based at RAF Valley in Anglesey, where William is learning to fly the Sea King Mk3 helicopter, has revealed his sex-change plan in an email, and hinted at it on a Facebook status update.
He told friends that he was recently diagnosed with gender dysmorphia and expects to transform himself into a woman called Ayla in the next 12 months.
“Prince William must have been a bit taken aback when he found out Ian, or rather Ayla, was becoming a woman. They will have met each other in the mess and will know each other through social events,” The Sun quoted a military source, as saying.”It wasn’t a total shock for those of us who have known Ian for a while, as he was not happy being a man. This sort of thing isn’t that unusual in this day and age, even in the military,” the source added.
Prince William will also be posted to Anglesey after successfully completing his RAF Search and Rescue pilot training in September
The second-in-line to the throne can expect to be promoted to captain and given overall control of the helicopter in the coming years, which means that there is a good chance of William and Flight Lieutenant Holdom teaming up. (ANI)
