This 100-Year-Old Celebrated Her Birthday By Flying Upside Down

As if living to be a centenarian isn't badass enough, a 100-year-old woman from Suffolk celebrated her birthday by doing a loop-de-loop in a glider.

Nora Brier, old person and stone-cold fox, marked the day she began living a century ago with the Anglia Gliding Club. When asked if she was nervous about hanging upside down in a small plane, she said "No." And Brier wasn't just dozing off in the back; her flight instructor let her fly the glider half the time.
