Well this is certainly something to Bee Positive about! Captain Holly Petitt and First Officer Keely Petitt became the first mother-daughter pilot duo in Southwest Airlines history when they flew from Denver to St. Louis on July 23, 2022.

"One moment you are holding this tiny little premature baby in your arms and in a blink of an eye she is sitting next to you on the flight deck of a Boeing 737 jet!" the proud mom wrote in a Facebook post. "I love you to the moon and back, Keely Petitt!"
