Mabel Livingston, a Senior CommUnity Care PACE participant and resident at The Homestead at Montrose, enjoyed a flight around the San Juan mountains as part of a donation from the Angel Flight program Wednesday, Aug. 30.

Pilot Michael Plante from Evergreen donated his time to make flying a plane a dream come true for Mabel who turns 98 this week. Mabel has always enjoyed flying and had hoped to obtain her pilot's license (she even began reading a pilot's manual), but at 92 years old gave up the challenge. On the flight, Mabel was given charge of the wheel and flew herself and three other passengers over the mountains, down to Durango, Silverton, Telluride and back to Montrose.

Accompanying her on the flight were Anne Johnson, therapeutic recreation manager for Senior CommUnity Care PACE, and Melinda Bolton, KJCT anchor from Grand Junction along with pilot Plante.
