Turning 100 is a truly impressive milestone that many (if not all) of us hope to reach someday.

And for those of us who do get the chance to celebrate a 100th birthday, it is obviously important to ring in the special occasion in a big way.

Al Blaschke did just that.

This 100-year-old decided to mark the occasion by doing something most people his age wouldn’t even dream of: jumping out of a plane.

Skydiving can be scary at any age, but Al doesn’t even flinch when he and his tandem instructor leap from their airplane — talk about a brave man!

It just goes to show that adventure, fun, and living life to the fullest have absolutely nothing to do with age.

Al’s skydiving video is so incredible to watch. He is just ecstatic as they float to the ground with their parachute above them.

I don’t know about you, but if I am fortunate enough to reach the impressive age of 100, I hope I’m just as adventurous as Al — although I don’t know that I’d particularly choose something as scary as skydiving.

What do you think of Al’s impressive birthday feat? Let us know in the comments.

And don’t forget to SHARE this incredible man’s skydiving video with friends and family!
