What is Dorothy Hoffner’s record according to the Guinness Book of World Records?
Dorothy Hoffner, a 104-year-old woman who gained notoriety after becoming the oldest person to ever skydive thanks to a recent jump, has passed away.
Joe Conant, a close friend of Hoffner’s, was discovered dead on Monday morning, and it has been claimed that Hoffner may have passed away on Sunday night while she slept.
Hoffner completed a tandem skydive on October 1 that might make her the oldest skydiver in history. 85 miles (140 kilometers) southwest of Chicago, at Skydive Chicago in Ottawa, Illinois, she made a parachute leap from a plane at a height of 13,500 feet (4,100 meters).
Moments after landing, Hoffner informed the adoring throng, “Age is just a number.” She had already jumped out of an airplane once, when she was a spry 100 years old.
Conant said it would take some time but he was working through the process to get Hoffner officially recognized as the oldest skydiver in the world by Guinness World Records after his death. Linnéa Ingegärd Larsson of Sweden, who is 103 years old, set the previous record in May 2022.
