For The First Time In 70 Years This 92-Year-Old WWII Pilot Gets To Fly Her Plane

Joy Lofthouse is a 92-year-old Air Transport Auxiliary veteran that took to the sky once again, more than 70 years after the way.

She was given the chance to board a Spitfire airplane for one more trip, aged 92.

She was one of just a few female pilots to fly for the British army during WWII, as she was part of the all-female division called “Attagirls”.

She had a job to shuttle planes from the front lines back to factories for repairs, and she flew 18 different aircraft during her service. However, she always held a special place in her heart for one of them: the Spitfire.

In order to mark the 70th anniversary of WWII’s end, she was called on to once again fly in a Spitfire.
The video shows her genuinely excited, although nervous as he tells the interviewer that she’s not as confident as she was when she was younger and that she’s well “aware of her age”.

She still couldn’t pass the chance to fly again, and she proves that one can be amazing at any age!
