Inspirational Ivy Richmond of Kesgrave celebrated her 100th birthday in style - by taking flight.
Nieces Amanda Richmond and Sarah Norman organised a series of surprises for Ivy's birthday on October 23, including a pleasure flight with a friend over Suffolk.
"The flight was the biggest highlight of all," Amanda said. "Ivy really loved it and was so excited."
The amazing 100-year-old was able to see the Orwell Bridge, Felixstowe, Framlingham and Woodbridge from the skies.
And she also got a bird's-eye view of Kesgrave, including Holm Court, where she lives, and Milsoms Kesgrave Hall, where she earlier enjoyed a birthday meal as part of her celebrations.
She has flown abroad a few times on holiday, and for her 90th birthday she went in a British Airways simulator in London and "landed" a 747 in San Francisco.
