Former President George H.W. Bush celebrated his 90th birthday on Thursday by skydiving from a helicopter.

“It’s a wonderful day in Maine — in fact, nice enough for a parachute jump,” tweeted Bush before his feat.

A Naval aviator during World War II, the statesman had made similar leaps for his 80th and 85th birthdays.

He had said that Thursday’s jump would be his last.

Bush was accompanied by a retired Army parachuter and touched down safely at approximately 11:15 a.m.

Pretty cool.
