HIGH-HEALING gran marked an element of her bucket list as it was whisked into the sky for the first time.
Elizabeth McName, 81, was advised not to fly by her doctor after suffering the perforated eardist in her 20s.
Despite the hole in treating the dagger, Elizabeth, known to her friends and family like Betty, heeded the advice – and never landed at the airport for 60 years.
But when a lung cancer was recently diagnosed and said he had between two and six months to live, Betty decided it was time to spread his wings.
Her son Andy helped her to prepare a list of wishes for things she would like to do before she died, and Betty seemed to be in heaven for a private flight.
However, the great-grandmother of 18-year-old Betty, instead of dragging into foreign refuges, flew through Bensley, North Yorkshire – even when she saw her home from the sky.
Andy approached the Prestwick Flying Club for the death of his mother, and pilot Luis Anderson took her back to the Bulldog.
Brave Betty, who now has tumors in her pancreas, neck and gulp, said: "I do not think it was as bad as I thought.
"It was nice, I should have done it a few years ago."
Blue Andy said: "She absolutely loved her. Obviously, it was her first and last.
"It was over the moon, she just could not believe it."
