90 year old Capetonian celebrated his birthday by jumping out of a plane!

Posted on

This is the third time that Colin Henley has taken to the skies to jump out of planes… with his first skydive taking place on his 80th birthday.

The “very young” Grandpa who comes from Cape Town decided that the best way to celebrate his 90th would be to see Cape Town from the skies and if the pics are anything to go by, he was absolutely right!

Extreme Scene offers Tandem Skydiving in Cape Town, a novel and unique way to experience the magnificence of the Western Cape, with one of the most beautiful Drop Zones in the world.

“The location for the Cape Skydiving experience takes place just 40-minutes drive north of Cape Town, along the West Coast. Marvel at the breathtaking view as you climb to 9000 feet before plummeting towards the ground in what is a drop zone like no other on earth!”

Colin’s granddaughter Hailey Donald posted the special pictures with a beautiful message for her Grandpa.

“Today is a special day. Today we celebrate the 90th BIRTHDAY of the greatest man I’ve ever known. Such a magnificent day. Thank you to Extreme Scene for organizing Colin’s jump, a very special and memorable day. Ending off with gorgeous wine and food at Constantia Glen.

It’s a great privilege and honour Grandpa, so much love and respect for you and your love of life. Happy Birthday.”
