A Zimbabwe female pilot got a round of applause from passengers when she managed to safely land an Air Zimbabwe plane at Joshua Nkomo Airport after battling bad whether for over an hour.

The Victoria Falls bound plane struggled to land in Bulawayo due to bad weather.

This forced young  Captain Elizabeth Simbi Petros to circle the city from 7:30AM until  8:15AM when she finally landed the aircraft.
