Zoey Tur

O.J. Chopper Pilot

Completes Sexual Reassignment

6/30/2014 8:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0630-zoey-tur-01Former legendary news helicopter pilot, Bob Tur, can officially roar like a woman ... because she's completed gender reassignment surgery.

Bob ... who now goes by Zoey ... famously covered the O.J. Bronco chase and captured the Reginald Denny beating for KCBS in L.A.

Zoey tells TMZ she finished the sexual reassignment surgery last week, and is recovering in the hospital.  We're also told she had "major cranial facial surgery."  

Zoey called in to TMZ Live while she was in the early stages of becoming a woman ... and explained her experience with gender dysphoria ... and how happy she was with the transformation process.

One of the things that worried her was the ability to fly with the same expertise ... which she admitted had become difficult.

As we previously reported ... Tur's rival helo-pilot, Dirk Vahle, underwent the same transformation to become Dana two years ago, and the two are now close friends.

This is what happens when mental illness is run through a filter of political correctness. Pure crazy turns into entitlement.

This is a good looking guy. What a waste of a beautiful man who is now nothing more than a destroyed, mutilated human being.

The man in the first picture looks like a longshoreman and if he were looking for a natural woman, with all the attributes of a woman, he is not going to look at this man and say of him, oops, I made a mistake; I thought you were a woman since you were carrying a purse.

Zoey, I do hope you are finding some much delayed and much desired peace of mind. God knows you have worked hard enough and suffered plenty on your road to self-fulfillment. Congratulations! Jack Butler
