Meet the real life Super Gran

The 86-year-old is the world's oldest solo female parachutist - and now the face of a global fashion brand.

She says you have to have a passion. What's your passion?

Thank you for posting this Azz.
How absoutely right she is and what a tremendous example .

My passion is horse riding I have worked and ridden professionally most of my life .
Earlier this year I hadn't ridden for nearly a year and a half and decided after much hesitation to go on a riding holiday .
It's a fast galloping place I go to and I wasn't quite sure if I was up to it ( had dreadful sciatica )
But I went had a wonderful time the horses and company and weather ( Spain) were fantastic .
When I came back the sciatica went away .
I now intend to get a Spanish horse it will probaby see me out - my passion until the day I die .

I'm not sure what my passion is. It used to be anything artistic, painting, drawing etc. What I do know is that it doesn't include jumping out of a plane.

I think she is amazing!

WOW! I suffer from sciatica, the problem is, I don't ride.

I have a passion for riding on trams. I know it is not so ambitious, but my ambition is to ride as many as I can worldwide.

What a great Gran she is

It looks like she thoroughly enjoyed her solo flight and she must be very proud of her title

If I'd been meant to jump out of a plane, I would have known I needed to stand in the line where God was handing out wings. I'm passionate about people being nice to each other.

I hope I grow old enough to do crazy stuff like this.
It’s inspiring.
