Today Irene O'Shea celebrates her 106th birthday! Once the Guinness World Record holder for the oldest person ever to skydive (at the age of 102), she has since been surpassed by Alfred Blaschke (105:147), who skydove aged 103:180.Β

Alfred Blaschke's record has been taken over by a Swedish woman

Also the 106th birthday celebration is actually a skydiver claimant who did it at 106.
