To celebrate his 100th birthday, Vernon Maynard did what a lot of 20-year-olds wouldn't dare: he jumped out of plane.
Maynard went skydiving for the first time ever on Nov. 4 at Skydive Perris in Perris, California, happily strapped to the back of instructor James Perez.
In a video of the event, Maynard, a self-described adventurer, can be seen brightly smiling while freefalling through the clouds for 44 seconds, reports The Press Enterprise.
He descended from 13,000 feet above the valley.
"I am just tickled to death and very appreciative that my friends helped put this together," Maynard told PE.com.
This man on a mission jumped alongside his great nephews, and was surrounded by family, friends and a crowd of onlookers who cheered when his feet hit the ground.
"Hallelujah," he shouted. "I want to go again."
According to a YouTube post, Maynard was born in Nebraska in 1913 and is a longtime L.A. resident, currently living in Palm Desert.
He previously worked at Northrup North American, part of the B-25 bomber team and the "Flying Wing." He is also the "last surviving owner of the Great White Steamship, which brought travelers from Long Beach to Catalina Island in the 1960s."
Oh, and he jumped off the deck of a cruise ship into shark infested waters when he was 65.
The real question: has anyone seen Maynard and Superman in the same room together?
