Oldest man recalls Wright Brothers flight

Posted:

NBC News--A man in Japan is now the oldest person in the world after the death of an Iowa woman.  He is 115 years old, the third oldest age for a man ever recorded.

Born in April of 1897, he was six when the Wright Brothers flew for the first time.  He attributes his longevity to sunlight and his efforts to keep his mind sharp.

Back in April, he bragged to reporters that he was learning English.
