Meet Vivian “Millie” Bailey. For her 102nd birthday this past Sunday, she decided to go skydiving! How amazing is that? After seeing former President George H.W. Bush take the leap at 90, she felt she could do it too.
“I was inspired by the fact that he did it,” Bailey told WJLA. “The fact that a person at that age could do the jump.”
She’d been wanting to do it for some time but was hoping someone would allow her to jump without the $300 price tag.
“You couldn’t ask for a more thrill-packed ending to the episode,” Eric J. Roberts, executive producer for the series, told WJLA. “Millie would be the first 102-year-old person on Mars if it could be arranged!”
Bailey was excited when the day came. She was full of questions for her skydive instructor Cornelius at Skydive Baltimore.
“Do you push me out before you come out?” WJLA said she asked. “If you want to go on a real adventure, but I think we should stick together,” the instructor laughed.
When she landed, she came up with a huge smile said her family.
What an amazing accomplishment. Would you skydive for your 102nd birthday?
