90-year-old pilot completes 90 US-Canada crossings

A 90-year-old pilot completed his birthday quest to fly 90 passes across the U.S.-Canadian border in his Cessna 172 Tuesday, even tallying a few extras a day after high winds got in the way of his plans.

“I’ll be back in 10 years for my 100th,” John Lawton of Seville, Ohio, said a few hours after parking his 1964 airplane at a Niagara Falls airport.
