90-Year-Old Man Celebrates Birthday with Wing Walk
Kit Braunholtz, former Gloucestershire County Councillor and green activist, found an unusual way to celebrate his birthday, by being strapped to a biplane and taking to the skies.
Mr Braunholtz did so at Rendcomb Airfield, near Cirencester.
He said: “Before I got there, I was excited and a little nervous but not too much, I was more concerned that it would be too rainy to fly.
“I put on the red flying suit and goggles and really felt ready to fly but the weather looked ominous.”
Eventually the weather lifted and the plane was ready take off, “The plane flew and swooped and I got a good view of the crowd of family and supporters who were gathered below me. It was an amazing view of the beautiful English countryside all around.
“I found it more exhausting than I had expected but also exhilarating and amazing but I was quite ready to come down when we landed.”
Helen Smith, Mr Braunholtz’s daughter, said, “He is a remarkable man. He climbed the Matterhorn for his 65th, abseiled down Eagle Star in his late 70s and climbed Napes Needle for his 86th.”
A jaw-dropping piece of footage of So Ueyama walking, bouncing and performing acrobatics on a slackline. It isn’t death defying, only a few feet off the ground, but more than makes up for this with his display of athletic prowess.
