SKYDIVING granny, Lorraine Roberson celebrated her 85th birthday on the weekend with another skydive with Moruya’s Skydive Oz.
Lorraine or “Rainie”, who hails from Bibbenluke, this time jumped with 11 of her family members and described her latest plummet to the earth as “fantastic”.
“It feels absolutely lovely,” she said. “I love floating around out there, you can see everything.”
This was the third jump for the skydiving granny. Lorraine first jumped in her seventies at Wilton and then again in Moruya on her 80th birthday.
Joining her on Saturday where 40 friends and family members who came from far and wide to help her celebrate, 11 of whom took the plunge jumping in tandem.
Her friends joked that she was very brave and perhaps didn’t have any brains, or was mad for jumping out of a plane.
She even had a perm especially for the day, just to keep her hair out of her face.
Member for Eden-Monaro Dr Mike Kelly coincidentally last week announced that Skydive Oz has been awarded $110,000 to develop an Extreme Sports complex at the Moruya airport.
