Brunei aviation celebrating National Day. Sends entirely
female flying crew to pilot a plane to Saudi-Arabia.

On National Day February 23, the tiny Sultanate of Brunei, situated on the island of Borneo in the Malay Archipelago, sent a Royal Brunei Airlines Boeing 787 "Dreamliner" with an entirely female cockpit crew on a flight to Jeddah in Saudi-Arabia. In Saudi-Arabia, however, women are not even allowed to drive a car due to a unique interpretation of Islam regarding the missing virtues of women.

Before that remarkable information finally reached China, it had already spread all over the world. [People's Network on March 17, 2016]
