Margaret McAlpine: 104-Year-Old Paraglider



To be young is to be daring, to be vital, to be capable of anything. To be old is to be….finished?

No matter how many times we tell our parents and grandparents “You’re young yet. You have your whole life ahead of you!”, we never truly believe they’re capable of doing the things we are. We think adrenaline pumps harder in our veins than it does in theirs.

For some, that may be true. For 104-year-old Guinness World Record holder Margaret McKenzie McAlpine, it certainly is not. The oldest female to paraglide tandem, Margaret shows us that youth truly is a state of mind.
