The US man always wanted to jump out of a plane, so to mark his 100th birthday he asked his mates to hook it up. 

And as you can see from this video taken last week, the old bloke had a blast! 

Maynard is a retired car dealer originally from Nebraska but who lives in Palm Desert. 

Skydive Perris manager Dan Brodsky-Chenfeld noted Maynard had to get a doctor’s note before doing the tandem jump with a trained instructor. 

Maynard had an interesting choice of words for the The Press Enterprise: ‘I am just tickled to death and very appreciative that my friends helped put this together.’

What a deadset champ!
