For his 90th birthday, former president George H.W. Bush decided to do what any normal 90-year-old would do — go skydiving.

It's a wonderful day in Maine -- in fact, nice enough for a parachute jump.

He's no stranger to skydiving. Bush celebrated his 80th and 85th birthdays the same way, and at the age of 20, he had to parachute to safety when his plane was shot down while serving as a pilot in World War II.

Thirty-something from Louisville, KY. Made of bourbon and awesome.
