Talk about taking the plunge

MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (AP) - September 12, 2011

And the groom, too.

Newlyweds Phil and Gail Mathis said their I Do's in a plane, 7,500 feet in the air.

Then the Ohio couple took the leap -- with parachutes.

The 58-year-old groom tells the Middletown Journal he wanted to do something crazy.

He told his bride-to-be he would only get married if they went skydiving together.

The 54-year-old new bride says she enjoyed the experience, but isn't sure she'll ever want to skydive again.
