ABove bookmark design by Lexi Smith (Courtesy image) living S.S. Catalina owner skydives at 101 'BY JIM WATSON In a new twist on the phrase "101st Airborne," the last surviv- ing owner of the S.S. Catalina celebrated his 101st birthday by skydiving with family members near Lake Elsinore. Vernon Maynard made the jump last Tuesday accompanied in the air by his niece, nephew and grand-niece. The jump was made from an altitude of 13,000, accord- ing to Dan Brodsky-Chenfield, manager of Skydive Perris. At 101, Maynard is believed to be the oldest person to sky- dive. Last year. a 103-year-old Brazilian woman by the name of Aida Mendes made a jump, howev- er it was in tandem with an instruc- tor, unlike the solo dive made by Maynard. Maynard was born Nov. 4, 1913, in Nebraska and although he didn't make his first jump until last year for his 100th birthday, he spent most of his life in the aerospace industry. He worked on B-25 bombers during World War II as well as the "Flying Wing," one of the clandestine precursors to the Stealth bomber. Maynard was a principal in the firm MGRS, which operated the S.S. Catalina from 1962 tintil 1975. (The "M" in MGRS stands for "Maynard".) The S.S. Catalina, also known as the "Great White Steamship," operated as the chief ferryboat between Catalina Island and the mainland for more than .50years. s i i riaay:' Novembei:t4:264 ...............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................
