Former President Celebrates 90Th By Skydiving


by WCCB Charlotte

KENNEBUNKPORT, ME -- Former president George H.W. Bush marked his 90th birthday by skydiving Thursday in Maine.

He uses a wheelchair because of Parkinson's and some doubted he could pull this year's jump off, but he strapped himself to a member of the All Veteran Parachute Team.

The 41st president rode it out like a pro. He went skydiving for his 75th birthday, again at 80 and 85.

His first jump came when his plane was shot down over the ocean in World War I.
