    I have been doing a litte research into my family and had heard of this lady Anne Budd who decided to have flying lessons in her 90's.
    I have just come across this video and am overjoyed so have swiftly called my family to tell them and all have a look as lots of research has been done but this has never been found before!
    She is my great great granny.... isnt she a great role model... trying flying at 94!

    Hi Kirstenfa,
    Great to hear from you!
    Frances Mabel Budd was my great great aunt and to the best of our knowledge had no children (My mother remembers going to her house in Borden, Hampshire.
    Her sister Mary Ethel Budd was my great great grandma and my mother (Lorna is her granddaughter) spent lots of time as a child with her.
    I'm interested to hear your connection to the family.

    Hi Debbie, I hope you see this as I haven’t seen your post for a year.
    My tree is Anne Budd (nee Later)>> Mary Ethel Budd >> Peter Kenneth Spiers >> Colin Spiers then me.
    Look Anne Budd up on Ancestry.com and you’ll find her in my tree with an earlier photo of her. You can contact me from there.
