Peggy McAlpine, 104 - Paraglider

Peggy McAlpine, from Stirling, Scotland, was 104 when she became the world's olderst paraglider. At 101 she rode a Harley and celebrated her 80th with a bungee jump!

In April 2012 she leapt from a 2,400ft peak in the Kyrenia mountain range in northern Cyprus. She was in tandem on a paraglider with pilot Ozgur Gokasan after helpers carried her from her wheelchair to be attached to him Peggy said at the time: 'I enjoyed every minute of it. It was better than the last time. I would certainly like to do it again - especially if anyone takes my record.'
