Grandmother, 85, Keeps Promise
Keeping a promise to her grandson that she would parachute when she turns 85, Thelma Tillery did just that. "When you step out on that little step, man, that's when it really hits you," Tillery said after successfully landing in Kearney, Nebraska.
She jumped tandem-style at a Kearney Municipal Airport sky-diving center, Kearney Hub newspaper reported.
"Everything worked, and I hit the ground running," Tillery said. "And that's about as good as you can get, I guess."
So good, in fact, she recommends the experience.
"Anyone who is curious about it and would like to do it ... should go ahead and do it," she said. "I'd do it again - not tomorrow - but it's not something I would hesitate to do again."
