Zimbabwe re-wrote its aviation history last week when the country witnessed its first all female flight deck crew flying Air Zimbabwe’s Boeing 737.

The flight from Harare to Victoria Falls was in the safe hands of Captain Chipo M. Matimba and Captain Elizabeth Simbi Petros, who flew the B737 – 200.

Air Zimbabwe posted pictures of the maiden all female deck crew on its Facebook page while Captain Matimba also shared photos of the groundbreaking moment. Cpt Matimba wrote: “History has been made!
