I just saw a TV commercial about a woman who lived to a very ripe and active old age. The commercial is for a financial firm (This is by no means an endoresment).

Here is a link to the company's web site. The commercial is featured front an center on the home page. Watch out for a huge influx of senior citizens on the training hills...

Somewhere in my VHS archives I've got a Blue Stratos (men's cologne) spot with a matching hang glider and a Wrigley's chewing gum spot with a NZ glacier launch. Does anybody remember these?

So, does anyone know who the pilot in the commercial is or where it was shot?

High jacked by Mrs. Cal-
Cal, being an "oldie but goodie" Laughing , having started HG in 1976, really looks up to the pilots who continue in this sport at a slighltly older age. mosh 189 is pushing it alittle, but who out there is claiming recent flights at what slightly older age?
Date and Age?

the section with the old dear running was shot on a tow dolly as she was not strong /able enough to carry the glider.Initialy they wanted one of our club members to do the launch but he thought that the difference in body mass would be very noticeable so Judy was suggested. Steve plays an old grumpy farmer in the next version of the advert

There is a commercial about Sarah Palin's Alaska and in one outside shot you can see a Exxtassy flying in the sky. Who is flying a rigid in Alaska?

Hey,

I remember those commercials. I recall that the guy in the Wrigley's commercial didn't wear a helmet. A lot of my non-hang gliding friends saw the commercial and commented as to how pretty, yet dangerous hang gliding looked. As to the recent commercials, it is good to see hang gliders appearing again. Maybe people will start to get the idea that people still hang glide.

Did she shoot at him?!? (The next scene was a dead guy on a spit roasting over an open fire.)

Part of what I love about this sport is that someone can ask a question like this and have a reasonable chance of getting an answer! Smile Maybe thats a bad thing for a sport struggling with numbers, but still...
