We all have dreams don’t we?  Some of us talk a lot about them  and some of  us actually make them happen.  The  gorgeous, glamorous, nonagenarian Kay Novak went up in a plane with Sir Alan Cobham, a wartime RAF pilot when she was fifteen years old and eighty years later she decided to celebrate her ninety fifth birthday by going up in a Tiger Moth at Tiger Airways in Gloucester and doing a loop the loop.  ‘The hardest part was actually getting into the open cockpit’ said Kay laughing ‘but once my legs were in the body just seemed to follow.  It was the best thing I have ever done in my life.’  She wore thermal underwear under the flying jacket and was far too excited to feel cold. She had invited friends and family to the event and they celebrated with ‘loads of champagne’.  ‘My feet have still not touched the ground.’  We all wish this plucky lady a very happy birthday and many more to come.
