Pretty amazing, particularly as he jumped from 15,000 ft.

If I'm capable of doing that when I'm 101, I won't complain.

If I manage to get to that age and can still think clearly I'll be happy. That's amazing.

He was interviewed on R4 this am and had clearly had a few close shaves in the war; quite a character. He also mentioned that he'd run 4.20-something for the mile (!) back 'when he used to be fit', a detail which was lost on Humphries but seemed rather more awesome than any skydiving record to me.
