Joy Lofthouse is 92 years old and hadn’t flown a Spitfire plane since World War Two, when she was in the Air Transport Auxiliary – that is until she rolled back the years and flew for the first time in 70 years.
Joy took to the skies in a flawless flight and was even interviewed by the BBC about her exploits.
When asked about the plane, she claimed:
It was the iconic plane. The spitfire lasted much longer because it’s such a wonderful aeroplane.Advertisement
The nearest thing to having wings of your own and flying.
Now we have to agree, the plane is undoubtedly iconic, but Joy is a pretty iconic lady herself.
