Flying high at 97 years old


(WGAL) A 97-year-old Pennsylvania man is proving he still has what it takes to rule the skies.

Bob Brocklehurst joined the Air Force during World War II, flying fighter planes over Alaska and the Aleutian Islands.

Decades later, he’s still performing the occasional loop and barrel-roll.

“I really do love to fly, I enjoy being upside down in an airplane,” he says.
