You would expect a birthday celebration would be a low-key gathering for a woman turning 80 years old, but one Colorado woman took to the skies instead.
Joretta Allen went skydiving to celebrate her big day. It was something she has wanted to do since she was 75 years old, even though her family thought it was a little different.
They decided it would be a good idea for her to skydive because it was what she really wanted, though they were a bit hesitant themselves.
Allen must have loved the daring fall. When asked if she would do it again, she said yes!
Skydiving, though not popular with all older people, has given a rush to other incredible elders as well.
