As a young girl, Mandisa ate sandwiches while sitting in the back of her mother's car and watched planes take off from Durban's Virginia Airport. This ignited her desire to become a pilot.
The fly-past, Mfeka said, took about 10 days of preparation, including administration.
South Africans took to Twitter to express their pride over Mfeka's achievements.
"I feel honoured and humbled but also accountable now that everybody is watching. I can't make the mistake of dropping the ball," she said.
Mfeka's father Themba Dlamini said watching his daughter take to the skies was emotional. Mandisa is one of his five children.
"I had that sense of pride that the Dlamini name was flying in the skies," he said.
Dlamini recorded the moment to ensure he could replay it later. He watched it again with his wife.
"We were so happy. Mandisa is an inspiration to all of us. She is an inspiration to her younger siblings," Dlamini said.
Dlamini wanted his daughter to become a doctor. However, he has no regrets over the path she has chosen.
