Janusz Orłowski aka „Grandpa” (Praszczur) is unique.
He began paragliding after he turned seventy. He stood out in the group of young, athletic paragliders at Monte Grappa in Italy by simply being the oldest. Ten years later, at the age of 88, he started dreaming of flying from Mount Olympus. Although it was difficult for him to climb up Zeus’ mountain, he spread his wing at the top and soared into the air. Grandpa has no intention of giving up, fulfilling one dream after another. At the age of 91 he rose to the height of 326 meters above the ground, earning himself a record in the Guinness Book of Records.
“Still Flying…” tells the story of Grandpa and documents the metaphorical path of man towards eternity.
