“Our gifts, our opportunities and greatest adventures are given to us from above.”


Jenny Forsythe (1970)
Fearless Jenny Forsythe has double degrees in chemistry and biology. She is a scientist and a wing walker (yes, she walks on the wings of airplanes). Fascinated by flight since childhood, Jenny, who was adopted as an infant, later discovered her biological relatives and found aviation was in her blood (her family has an air show background). Jenny says wing walking involves a lot of ground work. She likens it to learning to dance step by step… until you have the complete dance flying. She says she couldn’t do it if she were afraid, stating “I am conscious of – and respect the dangers, but I can’t afford to be scared.” On pursuing dreams Jenny advises, “Dig deep and consider what you’ve been intrigued by all of your life.”
