    97-year-0ld parachutes! I wouldn't trust parachutes that old, I'd want a new one.

    I've got a backpack chute Dad brought home, so it's about 75. I've used it as creative drapery for Halloween parties. Dad made a tent out of part of it. I'm saving it for just the right moment when an arch villain needs a chute to escape a burning plane I happen to be in, while I happen to be carrying a poorly-repacked, antique parachute with a tent-sized hole in it. That'll surprise him!
