We hope we're still this spry when we're his age!
Captain Lester Slate of Exeter gave a 90th birthday present to himself — his first skydiving jump from an airplane.
Here's what he said before the jump:
“I don’t think I’m going to get nervous. The Navy taught us how to use [parachutes] but they wouldn’t let us, unless it was an emergency.”
After the jump, they approached the ground, then landed safely, as his family clapped.
“It’s my land legs I’ve got to get back!"
He even said he'd love to do it again in a few years:
“When I get to be 95, or maybe 100."
