A man from Seattle celebrated his 100th birthday by skydiving out of a plane and says it is his new life mission to do it again next year and become the world’s oldest skydiver.

 

 

Centenarian Stu Williamson said he would love to snatch the title from Bryson William Verdun Hayes of Devon, England, who became the oldest man to perform a tandem parachute jump last year at 101 years and 38 days old, according to Guinness World Records.

 

“If I live another [year] and two months, I’ll bump him out of his place,” Williamson said. “I’ll have a reason to live.” Williamson, a resident of the retirement community Horizon House, celebrated turning 100 years old with the second skydive of his life. He performed his first just last year, on his 99th birthday.
