Woman Flies High for 102nd Birthday
By Nathan Ryder
Nona Draper, who recently turned 102, received a special birthday on Feb. 17. After recounting how she enjoyed her last airplane flight to Texas some 40 years ago, the centenarian was treated to a flight on a small plane by friends and family. "We took off and she looked out the window and could see everybody standing down here and we went over downtown and circled around a couple of times and then went down around the river and then flew over where she lives and they had a big sign out that said Nona," said Pilot Glenn Piacentini.
