  • I have been doing a litte research into my family and had heard of this lady Anne Budd who decided to have flying lessons in her 90's.
    I have just come across this video and am overjoyed so have swiftly called my family to tell them and all have a look as lots of research has been done but this has never been found before!
    She is my great great granny.... isnt she a great role model... trying flying at 94!
