International womens day!!!

..Celebrating the Womanhood ,my blog is dedicated to all those wonderful women who made a difference and setting up an example for their fellow beings ..

For the first time, women pilots operated Air India’s Mumbai-New York non-stop flight on March 8 to commemorate International Women’s Day.

Captain Rashmi Miranda along with Captain Sunita Narula were given the command of the Boeing 777-200 long-range aircraft which will fly through 10 time zones for 14 hours. Captain Swati Rawal and Captain Neha Kulkarni were the first officers.
The flight to the John F Kennedy airport in New York is approximately of 14 hours duration and operated with a double set of an all-women crew and supported by women of the National Aviation Company of India Limited (NACIL).

The National Aviation Company India Limited (NACIL), which operates Air India, has more than 136 women pilots flying on various international and domestic sectors...
..Isn't it wonderful??

Happy Women's day!!!

Happy Women's day to all the lovely ladies the world over.
Flying is not the only achievement these women have to their credit.There is no area where the women have not excelled themselves.
These ladies including the AI crew should be given standing ovation.
