WWII POW GOES SKYDIVING

In 1945, Luke McLaurine, a bombardier in a B-24, bailed out over Austria after his airplane suffered a catastrophic mechanical failure. He says he was only in the air for 10 seconds before hitting a tree and landing upside in a snow bank.

It had been his wish, he said, to “jump out of a perfectly good airplane.” But this time, he hoped to enjoy it. Luke jumped on Memorial Day along with another WWII veteran and two Vietnam veterans.
