QUAKERTOWN, Pa. - A 101-year-old woman crossed an item off her bucket list on Monday when she co-piloted a plane for the first time.
Naomi Cressman said she has always wanted to fly a plane and was able to do so before her 102nd birthday.
"I was given the opportunity as a gift so I took it," Cressman said. "I am just grateful to have so many friends."
Cressman co-piloted a plane that left from the Quakertown Airport and the flight lasted for about 20 minutes.
"My niece and I always wanted to be Amelia Earhart," she said.
Cressman's dream was fulfilled with help from the 'dream makers' program at Phoebe Richland where donations help fund residents' wishes.
