Seattle man skydives to celebrate 100th birthday

SNOHOMISH, Wash. — A Seattle man celebrated his 100th birthday by jumping out of a plane.

Robert "Stu " Williamson turned 100 Saturday. He went skydiving from 14,000 feet on Sunday, but it wasn’t his first time.

Williamson also went skydiving for his 99th birthday.

KIRO 7 spoke with him last week before this weekend's jump.

"You get a real shot of adrenaline when you look out the door, then it’s a real piece of cake after that,” said Williamson.

The Everett Herald Reports that Williamson is the oldest person to ever jump with Skydive Snohomish.

He told KIRO 7 he has three other activities on his bucket list: Taking a flight with a stunt pilot, flying in a gliding plane, and going on a good rollercoaster.
