102-year-old Eva Lewis went indoor skydiving for her birthday

June 26: The sprightly great-grandmother ushered in her 102nd year with an indoor skydive.

The daredevil pensioner -- who was born during the first World War -- donned overalls and a helmet before being whooshed into the air in a wind tunnel.

Ms Lewis felt the force of 177 kilometre per hour gusts and couldn't wipe the smile off her face the entire time.

The special day was a family affair, with three generations of Ms Lewis' brood -- that's her son Graham Lewis, 75, granddaughters Dawn Lewis, 47, and Sally Clarke, 44, and her great-grandson Felix Lewis, 9 -- turning out to cheer her on.

It seems the thrill-seeking centenarian is making a habit of high-octane birthdays. Last year she buckled up for an acrobatic aeroplane flight in a Spitfire, while for her hundredth 'do she met the Queen.

Here's to many more adrenaline-pumping celebrations in years to come, Eva!
