Still flying high at 92

JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) - November 22, 2010

The Joplin, Missouri, man spent his birthday Saturday flying a small plane.

It's his annual tradition that he's done for the last 12 years.

McConnell says he wants to earn the Guinness record for the "oldest person to fly an airplane."

But it's going to be a while.

A local paper reports that mark now stands at 102.
