Most 101-year-olds are happy if they can walk…nevermind jump out of an airplane! This British World War II vet is now the oldest skydiver in the world! Verdun Hayes jumped tandem on Saturday at the ripe old age of 101 and 38 days old. That breaks the record set by Canadian Armand Gendreau, who did some skydiving at age 101 and 3 days back in June 2013. Hayes got into skydiving late in life. He jumped for the first time at age 100!
