At 93, Arthur Thomas Angell is taking flight. Literally.
“One thing led to another,” and Angell found himself skydiving from an airplane at 10,000 feet.
Angell went skydiving as part of a program LaSalle Park Retirement Community offers residents, Living Life, to fulfill wishes.
“I was a little reticent as to what I was getting into,” Angell says to InsideHalton.com.
And with a push, he and his tandem master were free falling over Niagara, Canada, for nearly a minute of calm and quiet before his parachute opened. Angell admired the view but quipped he felt better once the parachute opened.
Angell was a Royal Air Force flight engineer on Halifax bombers during World War II. He says he tried skydiving a decade ago out of curiosity.
