92-Year-Old Air Transport Auxiliary veteran, Joy Lofthouse, recently took flight again in the iconic Spitfire aircraft that she last flew during World War II 70 years ago. The video capturing the moment is incredibly special and a must-see!
The special occasion marked the 70th anniversary of the war’s end and Joy was more than thrilled to take part. Throughout her time of service in England, she flew 18 different aircraft, but the Spitfire plane was her all-time favorite.
Joy described flying the Spitfire as “the nearest thing to having wings of your own and flying that I’ve known.” It was clear that she was so moved by the experience of flying again and even said that it made her feel young again. We’re so inspired by Joy and her fearlessness even after all of these years!
Watch Joy take to the skies again in the touching video below!
