Wonderfully fantastic for her, it's great to see her enjoying herself. If I ever hit 98 years young and take a helicopter ride chances are it is for work or a med-vac.

God love her! What a fantastic story. You're never too old to fulfill your goals and dreams. Great job to her young friend for helping to make it happen, and way to go Cougar for stepping up!

My wife and I have known Mrs. Badcock for over 40 years. To say she is an amazing person is an understatement. She is sharp as a tack. her memory is excellent for her age. I'm surprised s he hasn't tried bungie jumping.

Excellent story... I am glad that Mrs. Babcock got to experience something she wanted to do for a long time. I hope you get to complete everything on your bucket list, congratulations on this accomplishment!

This is a delightful story and adventure for this brave lady and a real nice thing for Cougar Helicopters to do for her.Bravo to both!!!!I was just wondering if it is true that "The most dangerous thing about flying is the risk of starving to death."??? — Dick Depew
