Why the picture of two Pakistani female pilots is going viral
The PIA had appointed an all-women crew for difficult flight to Gilgit.
The Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) recently posted a picture of two of their female pilots, who flew the Islamabad-Gilgit flight.
Along with the picture, the airline wrote "The flight to Gilgit is very challenging and requires a lot of precision and technique. Our dynamic duo, Captain Maryam Masood and First Officer Shumaila Mazhar make it look so easy as they fly through the mountains celebrating the beauty of our northern areas! Way to go!!"
