Skydiving Senior Citizens

There's a group of senior citizens who are proving they're independent thinkers.

"It's a total feeling of flying your body so it's hard to tell someone what flying your body feels like unless you experience for yourself,” Tri-State Skydivers’ Larry Lemaster said.

"Whenever we open the door, it's real loud and real windy inside the airplane as soon as that happens, the butterflies in your stomach tend to turn into eagles," Tri-State Skydivers’ David Boster said.

While it's true there are some people who would jump at the chance to do this, pardon the pun there are others who like those feet firmly on the ground.

“Total exhilaration-- it's 100 percent pure adrenaline running through their veins right from the start," Boster said.

This group of super seniors are members of the Harvest Club and travel and social group with the First State Bank.
