The last time Harry Read parachuted out of an aircraft he was 20 years old and above enemy-occupied France.
Today he jumped again - this time aged 94 and in the peaceful skies above Wiltshire. The D-Day veteran was accompanied by two grandchildren and a great-grandson.
Harry is raising money for charity and preparing for a possible jump next year - to mark the 75th anniversary of D-Day. Richard Jones went to see how he got on.
