Madame Nguyen Cao Ky born Dang Thi Tuyet Mai, is the former wife of Nguyen Cao Ky a former South Vietnamese air force commander and politician, who served as Prime Minister of South Vietnam from 1965 to 1967, and then as Vice President until his retirement from politics in 1971. Some sources have referred to Madame Dang Tuyet Mai as the former first lady of South Vietnam while others as the former second lady since her ex-husband's highest position in the former South Vietnam was Vice President and not President (the prime minister's position was head of government but not head of state.)

She was an Air Vietnam stewardess (flight attendant), before she married General Ky, then the chief of staff of the South Vietnamese air force. [835376]

While her husband served as Prime Minister and Vice President she would travel around South Vietnam along with him wearing a military flight suit to show solidarity with the armed forces.[835377]

In December 1966, she traveled to Tokyomarker's Jujin Hospital of Cosmetic Surgery, for surgery under the name of Miss Dang Tuyet Mai of South Vietnam, which was reported by the Times Magazine.[835378]


During the Fall of Saigon, her husband had made arrangements for her and their children to be evacuated, while he made his last effort to save South Vietnam, but his efforts were futile and he fled South Vietnam aboard the USS Blue Ridge and fled to the United States, and they settled in California.

She has since divorced and moved back Vietnam, mamaging a restaurant called Pho Ta.

Madame Ky's daughter, Nguyen Cao Ky Duyen, is a well-known personality in the overseas Vietnamese entertainment industry (usually in the role of MC for musical programs).
