This 100-Year-Old Woman Went Stunt Flying for Her BirthdayOct 7, 2014 Brandon Google Plus Link No Comments
Have you given any thought to what you’d like to do on your 100th birthday should you live that long? Maybe you’d like to enjoy a nice, quiet meal at a favorite restaurant. Or, maybe you’d like to peruse some old photo albums and reminisce on the past. Maybe you’d like to have the family over for a birthday celebration. Maybe you just want to sit on the couch and not even think about the fact you’re a century old. Or, on the off chance, maybe you’d like to climb into an airplane and do some stunt flying to take the edge off the day. No? Well, that’s exactly what an English woman named Nora Brier decided to do on the day she turned 100 years old.
Lest you think she passed out or lost her nerve while in the air, she was even willing to fly the plane for some of the flight. That’s one tough lady! And it wasn’t merely a joy ride either – the plane went for (and accomplished) a full-on “Loop-De-Loop” maneuver. I have to give some serious props to this birthday girl, because I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t even attempt that at just over a quarter of her age. Luckily for all of us on the ground, Brier had the whole experience recorded. Check out the footage below.
