‘This is your captain speaking… my co-pilot’s my little girl’: Father and his 30-year-old daughter fly together on Thomas Cook flight to Tenerife

Captain Peter Elliott has worked as pilot for Thomas Cook for over 30 years
He inspired his daughter Laura to join and learn to fly herself in 2009
She flew Airbus and her father Boeings so working together was unlikely
Fluke in the roster meant father and daughter shared cockpit this month
Mr Elliott made announcement to passengers that it was a special flight
He told those travelling to Tenerife he was flying with his daughter.

Good to see even more barriers being broken down to enable women to work in “non traditional” roles.
