Was That Bubby Jumping?

(Video below) Arlene Beckman, 80, of Woodcliff Lake, celebrated her birthday by parachuting from an airplane for the first time, which took place at Skydive Jersey Shore at Monmouth Executive Airport, where many Lakewood families go on Sundays to watch the parachuters and planes. Born June 6, 1929, in New York City, Beckman had been thinking of parachuting since she was about 20. "I've always loved the thought of flying like the eagles, just floating," Beckman said. "And I thought, someday, I'm going to do it." The video below is at the Monmouth airport, although not of Arlene Beckman.
