We’ve heard it time and time again that age is just a number
And in this case, it truly is.
So much so that age was not a barrier for this 82-year-old expat woman in Dubai.
Meet Hilde, an elderly woman with the spirit of a brave lion, who took Dubai’s sky by storm over the weekend.
While she was in the UAE to visit some members of her family, Hilde decided to tick and decided that jumping out of a plane was the way to go.
"Each year when I would come to Dubai to visit my family, I would watch your skydivers in the sky. It's something I've always wanted to do, and it was the last thing on my bucket list," Hilde said to Skydive Dubai on Instagram.
The highlight for me was just being able to sail along, looking at the Palm from above. It was wonderful,” she added.
This isn’t the first jaw-dropping video that includes jumping from the sky in Dubai.
Just last month, we told you about the magnificent Expo 2020 video countdown that included jaw-dropping stunts all over the UAE – from the sky to the desert to the Expo 2020 site.
All we can say about this is: you go girl!
