This is girl power at its finest.

Air Zimbabwe made aviation history with its first all-women flight crew. Captains Chipo M. Matimba and Captain Elizabeth Simbi Petros safely flew Flight 737 from Harare To Victoria Falls.

How awesome would it be to peek inside the cockpit and see two black women in the driver’s seat?

This moment comes right after a Niger woman,Lieutenant Ouma Laouali, became the first female pilot to serve in the country’s Armed Forces.

The normally male-dominated flight industry definitely has some #blackgirlmagic competition.

After the flight, Captain Simbi 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!!!!!!”

The excited captains posted pictures of the awesome moment:

Air travel is just another arena where black girls dominate, and we’re here for it.
