Herb Hanley is not your average 95 year old. Rather than spending his 95th birthday tinkering in the garden as he usually would, he decided to take the plunge at our Sydney-Wollongong drop zone with his granddaughter and great-grandson for a skydive spanning 3 generations!
This was Herb's third time in the air, having jumped with us 5 years ago for his 90th birthday and again a few weeks after. Herb broke his own record as Skydive the Beach's oldest skydiver and the oldest in the Illawarra.
Herb's great-grandson was also celebrating his 18th birthday and the three daredevils had a crowd of family and friends surrounding the drop zone to cheer them on.
Showing us that you are never too old for a little adventure, Herb is keen to get back up in the air when he turns 100 - what a legend!
