British Airways Boeing 777 father-daughter pilot team flies together for final time

The only father-daughter team on the British Airways’s Boeing 777 flew together for the final time yesterday.

David Woodruffe’s final flight with his daughter Kat, 35, landed at London Heathrow airport after completing his retirement flight from New York.

After joining the airline in 1984, Woodruffe held the role of captain. He said he felt mixed emotions flying alongside his daughter during his final flight.

Their last flight as team was #BA172 JFK – LHR from Nov 1 (arriving in LHR on Nov 2).

The duo from Horsham, West Sussex have operated around a dozen flights together during which Kat would call him “captain, dad and occasionally Dave”, Belfast Telegraph news website reported.
