The first time Vicki Baker jumped out of a plane, she was sixty years old. “I loved it. I just wanted to do something to celebrate my sixtieth birthday. It’s the most fun thing I’ve ever done,” says Vicki. “I’m just beginning my second childhood.”
Vicki’s sixty-two now, and many weekends can still be found at Skydive Skyranch in Siloam Springs, not too far from her home in Prairie Grove. As she reaches for her camera, Vicki says that sometimes she just comes to watch. “[Just hearing the sound of the planes] turns me on,” says Vicki.
