paraglider 104 y-o Peggy McAlpine - YouTubeSeeking to reclaim her world record for oldest paraglider from a newcomer to the sport — a 101-year-old Utah woman who sailed to the Guinness World Book last month — 104-year-old Peggy McAlpine successfully jumped off a 2,400ft cliff two weeks ago.

The British centenarian refused to allow her legacy to be unceremoniously usurped, and so arranged for a repeat of her previous tandem paragliding adventure.

McAlpine said she would do it again should anyone capture her record again.
