A 97-year-old World War II veteran and former paratrooper jumped from a plane in France, 75 years after first jumping in Normandy during D-Day!

Tom Rice relived the time he nearly died jumping from a C-47 Douglas airplane, then was shot at, again and again. Despite being 97, Rice climbed once more into the bone-rattling fuselage of a C-47 and, while flying over the Normandy fields where he first saw action in 1944, leaped into the unknown.
