90 year old man celebrates his birthday skydiving

Check out this video: 90 year old man celebrates his birthday skydiving

Posted: Jan 22, 2018 11:09 AM

The sky was not the limit for one elderly man in southern California.

Robert Reed says he's been talking about jumping out of an airplane for years and even considered joining the paratroopers during World War II when he was in basic training, but decided against it.

Reed turns 90 years old on Monday and said the occasion seemed like as good a time as any.

Reed says he was inspired by former President George H.W. Bush, who used to skydive each year on his birthday.

He also said being up in the sky was a chance for him to be closer to his wife.

In all, Reed roped in 30 people to celebrate his birthday.
