Zimbabwean Pilot Merna Cremer tweeted her delight about her maiden flight with Emirates into the country. She said:
My first flight with Emirates into my beautiful country Zimbabwe I felt like the happiest girl alive when we crossed into Zimbabwean airspace. The Captain gave me the flight and I landed the Boeing777 for the first time into Harare dream come true.
… The passengers knew it was a Zimbabwean First Officer flying them and some waved to me from the airbridge with big smiles as they disembarked. So heart warming and the most memorable flight of my career
Merna is the wife to former Chevrons skipper Graeme Cremer.
She also flew the Zimbabwe national cricket team from Harare to Bulawayo for the ICC Cricket World Cup qualifiers to be played between March 4-25.
Before the flight to Bulawayo on which her husband was a passenger, Merner tweeted:
So great to have the coach, captain, team on board, delivering them safely to the City of Kings. All the very best, this is our soil, this is our home. Do your country proud.
