A British World War II veteran has broken the Guinness World Record for being the oldest person to complete a tandem skydive.
Joined by four generations of his family, Hayes returned to the air over Devon, England, on Sunday, breaking the world record for the oldest tandem skydiver. Hayes nabbed the top spot by a mere 35 days, knocking a Canadian from the record books who completed the feat at 101 and three days old.
“I’m absolutely over the moon, it’s beautiful,” Hayes told The Associated Press. “Hopefully I’ll be doing this when I’m 102 or 103, just depends on the luck of the draw really,” he said.
