86-Year-Old Woman Fulfills Skydiving Dream

MOLALLA, Ore. -- An 86-year-old woman fulfilled a lifelong dream Thursday by jumping from a plane.

Friends and family cheered on Glenna Sparks as she boarded the plane in Molalla with an expert skydiving instructor from Skydive Oregon. As the plane climbed into the sky, those on the ground were anxious. But inside the plane, Sparks was ready. After her jump, onlookers clapped as Sparks was helped back into her wheelchair.

"I don't know, it was nice," said Sparks, a woman of few words. Sparks says she wants to try something a little more dangerous next time.
