80-Year-Old Celebrates Birthday With A Skydive!

Nancy Long, who turns 80 on Oct 5, wanted to mark the milestone in a special way that truly makes her a boomer with zip! She jumped out of a plane with her son.

That’s not the only thing that proves Long doesn’t let age hold her back; she achieved a doctorate at the age of 68, went parasailing at 74 and dances on cruise ships with the performance troupe Senior Follies.  “Seniors can have fun. Just because you hit 60 or 70 the world doesn’t end,” says Long.
