World War II Veteran Skydives to Celebrate 100th Birthday

A man from Nevada proved that age is just a number when he decided to go skydiving to celebrate his 100th birthday.

World War II veteran Charlie Montanaro turned 100 on January 28, and marked the occasion by jumping from more than 13,500 feet, with some help from Skydive Arizona in Eloy.

Footage captured by Emily R Quinn shows Montanaro taking the plunge.

According to local media, Montanaro wanted to do something he had never done before, and said skydiving was “about all there’s left to do in life”.

“That first blast is cold on the face, but that’s a good deal… I’d do that again,” he said. Credit: Emily R Quinn via Storyful
