KEENE, N.H. (AP) - A 92-year-old New Hampshire woman has celebrated her birthday by sky-diving from a plane at 13,000 feet.

Swanzey resident Jane Bockstruck tells The Keene Sentinel newspaper she doesn't know what overcame her when she decided to take the parachute jump.

With a group of friends and relatives watching, Bockstruck leaped Sept. 19 at the Jumptown sky-diving club in Orange, Mass., west of Boston. She says she doesn't remember jumping from the plane.

But tandem partner and jump instructor Paul Peckham Jr. says she had perfect form and landed without a hitch.

He says she's the oldest person he's taken on a jump. The second-oldest was 78.
