    One daring nonagenarian took to the skies to relive her remarkable past.

    British World War II pilot Joy Lofthouse had the chance, earlier this month, to fly an iconic plane she flew during the war -- the Spitfire, BBC News reported. The 92-year-old's flight took place about 70 years since she had last flown the legendary aircraft.

    "It was lovely. It was perfect, of course," Lofthouse told BBC after her flight. "It made me feel quite young."
