George H.W. Bush Celebrates 90th Birthday
George H.W. Bush celebrated his 90th birthday by doing something you will not too many 90 year olds doing. He jumped out of a helicopter and parachuted. The 41st president announced on Twitter that he intends to do this but it was kept secret until the last minute in case he wanted to forfeit.
As it turns out, he went through with it. He and a retired member of the Golden Knights, the Army's parachute team, went up in a helicopter near his summer home on the Maine coast and as you can see below, he was true to his word.
