Harry Moyer is greeted after landing on the ground in San Luis Obispo, California, the United States, Oct. 30, 2020. Harry Moyer, a U.S. WWII "Flying Tiger" veteran pilot, celebrated his centennial birthday by taking a solo flight here on Friday. Moyer took off from the airport at noon in a Mooney MK 21 airplane and circled the airfield twice, giving a jaunty tip of his wings to the onlookers who had gathered below to watch him set the world record for the oldest licensed pilot to conduct a solo flight in the world, which is being confirmed by Guinness World Records.
