Backstory: two weeks ago, a bunch of my family and I went for tandem flights at Wallaby to celebrate my mother's birthday. When we got home and showed my great grandmother (who turned 100 in July) pictures of the experience, she decided it was something she'd like to do. She's pretty mentally and physically fit, so we called up Malcolm to see if it was something he would do. He said yes, and so last Saturday my 100 year old great grandmother went hang gliding. She had a great time and has even talked about doing it again. Here's the video of her flight -- it's the standard Wallaby video that you can pay them to shoot and make, plus a few stills that my dad took of her flight. I thought that the people on this forum might get a kick out of watching it.
You'll have to copy and paste the link b/c I'm a new user and can't post it directly.
This is just cool! And to think this woman was born only a couple years after the Wright Bros took to the air in the first powered aircraft.
to great grandma!
PS - I was a little worried that her helmet was a bit heavy for her. She was looking straight down most of the time. _________________ WW 141 Fusion SP
