O.J. Simpson Chase

He-licopter Pilots Become She-licopter Pilots

6/19/2014 4:33 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0619-dana-vahle-ZOEY-TUR-02
Two L.A. helicopter pilots who went mano a mano during the O.J. Simpson saga are no longer mano -- they're both women.

TMZ broke the story ... former KCBS pilot Bob Tur -- who famously shot the Reginald Denny beating and covered the O.J. slow speed Bronco chase -- underwent sexual reassignment surgery and is now Zoey Tur.

Former KNBC chopper pilot Dirk Vahle was a fierce competitor of Bob's during O.J. ... she's now Dana Vahle

Tur and Vahle were the first 2 chopper pilots to spot the O.J. Bronco ... and they fought publicly over who saw O.J. first.

The 2 hated each other back in the day, but now they're bosom buddies.

Tur was on TMZ Live not too long ago and talked about his transition.   It's pretty interesting.

Don't really care what these two do with themselves but when they get married and have kids they cause so much damage. His wife wasted her love, her years, her heart. She chose him to spend the rest of her life with, to have children, to be her partner, not someone who lied from the start about even wanting to be a man. Like I said, do whatever you want to do to yourself, but don't drag others into your deception, shame on you.

Doesnt matter how many operations you have, if you were born a male, you will always be male and if you were born female, you will always be female. (Yes "Chaz" Bono, Im talking to you)

"Mano" menas "hand." It is NOT the Spanish word for "man." That word is "hombre."

Ok I think that this is by and far the oddest story I've seen on TMZ.. ever! To have the two helicopter reporters that chased down OJ wind up BOTH being transgender and BOTH transitioning... those are some crazy odds.
