This Delta Flight Was Piloted By A Mother And Daughter Flight Crew
March 23, 2019
A passenger on a Delta Airlines flight from Los Angeles to Atlanta shared a photo of a mother-daughter pilot team — and the internet can't get enough of it.
Passengers on the flight were stunned to learn they were in the hands of a family piloting team — Capt. Wendy Rexon and her first-officer daughter, Kelly Rexon.
Passenger Dr. John R. Watret posted a tweet including a photo of the mother-daughter duo that has since gone viral.
"Just flew from LAX to ATL on Delta piloted by this mother daughter flight crew. Great Flight. Inspiring for young women," he wrote.
Watret — who is chancellor of the Embry–Riddle Aeronautical University in Florida — learned about the crew's relationship after a woman boarding the aircraft asked a flight attendant if her two kids could visit the pilots.
He said he overheard the family talking about the mother and daughter flying the plane, according to a university release.
"I thought that was amazing. I was in awe. I asked if I could visit them, too," Watret said.
"It's good for aviation and inspiring for all of us."
