Flying can be a daunting experience (for some of us). 

But I'm sure the majority of us have endured it at least once in our lives.

But for 60+-year-old Sue this was gonna be the first time – how exciting – and Twitter user (and employee) Elaine Filadelfo live-tweeted the whole experience as they flew from LA to San Fran. 

Sue got to experience the pros of flying 

And the inevitable cons

We've all be there...

What a lovely gal...

We'd love to sit next to Elaine on a flight. 

And finally, Sue got to experience the magic of flying for the very first time 

"We are above the clouds! They look like they're on the water!"

And just like that – it was all over 

Sue added:

It's the little things like flying, that we take for granted, that are a major milestone for others.

What an incredible story.
