A bit over 6ft peak is my guess (w/h 6ft2 in boots)

183 peak (at a stretch) is entirely possible, looks about 178 or 179 cm tall with Rob in the main pic 5 years ago, but he IS stooping a bit, so I'll vote him in at bang on 5'11" in 2019.

LOL 6'2!!!!! Some Men have ego problems.

He looks sort of compact in the torso area, so I can see how he was a taller man.

in airplane i thought 183-183,5 range and looked it up here right after i saw the movie, i think this is about right. the strange thinf is that he have lost 4 cm and isnt relly that old. Maybe he still can measure taller than he looks?

Giving yourself 3" of height in a claim. Good Job.

Not under 6ft and quite possibly stood a fraction over it. In some shoes I could see him getting close to 6ft2

Rob, any chance you could see him 6'0.25"-6'0.5" at peak? I think he might've edged Leslie Nielsen in Airplane.
Editor Rob: not entirely impossible...I believe the last thing I watched that Hayes was in was an old episode of Wonder Woman, I'd have put him as a solid enough 6ft in the scenes he had.

The unforgettable Ted Stryker. He looked like a six footer in Airplane

I never thought of him looking 6'1-2". I always thought he was about 6'0". Looked 6'0" in Airplane.

I thought he could have passed for 6'1" back in Airplane but I see that he looks more a six footer in photos. 1.5 inches is a relatively large amount of height loss I think considering that he's 67.

6'2" peak is hilarious but I was going to say that he didn't look at low as 5'10 range peak. Somewhere around 6 ft is good I think.
[Editor Rob: he's lost height for sure since Airplane days]
