Sky's limit for brothers who won't let disease define them

Two Belfast brothers have shown that the debilitating condition both suffer from does not define their lives. Christopher and David Sloan, who both have Parkinson's disease, took part in indoor skydiving - which is the nearest imitation of flight open to humans - and both declared it a "freeing" experience.

Staff at the We Are Vertigo facility in the city's Titanic Quarter described the brothers as inspiring and proving that when someone is really determined to do something beyond their normal scope of activity, the sky is literally the limit. It takes people like Christopher and David to make others realise what is possible for them and how lives can be changed.
