HERTS Advertiser editor Matt Adams successfully completed a 13,000ft tandem skydive in aid of the newspaper's charity Grove House yesterday (Sunday)
It was a case of third time lucky, as two previous attempts to jump were cancelled due to bad weather.
"It was an incredible rush," he said afterwards. "Quite unlike anything you'd imagine, but I loved every minute!
"I'm not sure I'd do it again though, as I think I left my stomach somewhere in the skies over Oxfordshire."
