GARDINER -

A New Windsor great-grandfather celebrated his 90th birthday this week by doing something on his bucket list! He went skydiving!

John Shultz jumped from a plane at Skydive the Ranch in Gardiner Monday.

The Airforce veteran says it’s something he has wanted to do for more than 60 years. "I just hope I might've set a little example for people enjoying life and do what you want to do," says Schultz.

Shultz says he wasn't scared, but did find it a bit cold up there. He also says he'd consider doing it again!
