Irene O’Shea finally made the historic tandem jump this week after it was postponed five times due to bad weather, according to Adelaide Now.
Despite having only one previous jump under her belt – which she did last year aged 100 – the great-grandmother says she wasn’t at all nervous about the 14,000 foot fall.
“I haven’t done any preparation because I’ve never been frightened of heights,” she said.
It was all in the name of a good cause too – raising money to fund research into Motor Neurone Disease. Mrs O’Shea’s daughter passed away from the disease in 2008.
“I am doing this to raise money for MND – that’s the main thing, not for personal gain,” Mrs O’Shea said.
