Check out this dare-devil granddad.

At 97 years old, George Moyse from Dorset is thought to have become Britain's oldest skydiver after jumping out of a plane 3,048 meters in the air to raise money for charity.

George, who'll celebrate his 98th birthday on Wednesday, landed safely on Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire.
