Video: 91-year-old pilot still takes flight, designs planes

University Park, Pa. -- Bill Fuchs (pronounced "Foosh") has been doing what he loves for almost a lifetime, but in his case, that amounts to nearly seven decades up, up and away. At 91 years old, Fuchs is a member of Penn State’s Class of 1941 and a resident of the Village at Penn State, a retirement community in State College, Pa., with hilltop views of Beaver Stadium. While some come to a place like the Village at Penn State to slow down, Fuchs has a different take on living. He spends his time designing and flying light aircraft.

In Motion caught up with Bill Fuchs while he was getting his latest design up in the air. Watch his story here.
