Man breaks Guinness world record for oldest tandem skydive and it’s not his first time

Most of us would freak out jumping from a plane at 14,000 feet. But, can you imagine your Grandpa doing it?

A Texas man named Al Blaschke set a Guiness world record recently. He became the oldest tandem skydiver at 103 years young. Proof that age is just a number.

Incredibly, it wasn’t even his first time skydiving. He did it back in 2017 to celebrate his 100th birthday.

You know, I’ve always wanted to skydive at least once, bucket list thing, but I don’t even like flying so I can’t even guess how it going to happen! Congrats to good ole Al. I applaud you my friend!

Check out the video below.
