A Mother and Daughter first – Co-Piloting a Boeing Flight
Capt. Wendy Rexon and her daughter First Officer Kelly Rexon were the pilots behind the controls of a Delta Boeing 757 during a flight from Los Angeles to Atlanta last Saturday.
“Just flew from LAX to ATL on Delta piloted by this mother daughter flight crew. Great Flight. Inspiring for young women,” tweeted Dr. John Watrel, the chancellor of the world-renowned aeronautical university Embry-Riddle Worldwide, who snapped the photo.
Inspiring could be an understatement, though. The photo of the mother/daughter duo quickly went viral, raking up more than 40,000 likes on Twitter.
Watret stumbled upon the magical moment by chance. He had overheard a woman boarding the plane asking if her children could visit the flight deck.
