3AW drive presenter Derryn Hinch took to the sky yesterday morning in an aerochute. The radio journalist was honouring a commitment he gave to depression survivor Jerry Farsoun a couple of weeks ago to go up in what Derryn describes as "lawn mower powered umbrella".

Jerry and Derryn took off from the Tooradin Airfield just after 7.00am Saturday in a bid to raise awareness of the effects and consequences of depression. Jerry Farsoun is the founder of Over Downunder and will soon take off on a flight across Australia in his aerochute in a bid to raise as much money possible to help his cause.
