A video has emerged in which a female Nigerian Air Force pilot identified as Flying Officer OO Oke was spotted flying the L-39ZA.
In the video, which was posted on Twitter by @Jakepor21, Oke could be seen flying solo on the L-39ZA, becoming the first female pilot to do so in the history of 403 Flying Training School Kano.
It should be noted that female pilots in the Air Force are making history by achieving what their male counterparts have achieved.
Nigerians took to the comment section of the post to share their thoughts on Oke’s achievement.
Onyeukwu Nnadozie with the handle @Mandouze noted that Oke had done a great job, adding that he would be proud to see Air Force pilots integrate the use of digital maps for mission planning.
