Harare, Zimbabwe — History was recently made back in November 2015  in the country of Zimbabwe when for the first time ever, an all-female flight deck crew took command of an Air Zimbabwe Boeing 737 flying from Harare to Victoria Fall.

They were the pilots, not the flight attendants.  Photos posted to Facebook by the airline show Captain Chipo M. Matimba and Captain Elizabeth Simbi Petros smiling in the cockpit of the B737-200, preparing to take flight.

After a successful landing, Captain Petros, wrote on her Facebook page: “Air Zim First:- All Women 737 Flight Deck Crew! Flt to Vic Falls This Morning.Was A pleasure Skipper Chipo Matimba!”
