103 Yr Old Takes First Flight

Sat May 12, 2007 12:41 am

Amazing she was able to wait so long and never fly. She certainly has been around and seen alot happen in the flying world.

lol she wasn't married to the pilot, the lady who arranged the flight was. I'd be hesitant to do anything with a 103+ year old pilot.

She got to fly in one of Cirrus' brand new G3's. Very nice aircraft.
