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.

I am sorry I don't understand this and I still think he is a guy no matter what they cut off or what body part they do plastic surgery to.

The article says she also went through major facial structure surgery, where they shave the adams apple, shave your jawbone and chin, nosejob and eyesockets (brow area) to make her face much more feminine-looking. Wait until you see the "after" picture. Money CAN buy happiness for someone with body-dysmorphia. She will "pass" when she heals up. :) Congrats and I hope you are finally happy with what you see in the mirror. You deserve it and much more.
