Former President George H.W. Bush celebrates age 90 by...skydiving...?

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Former President George H.W. Bush is 90 years young -- and what better way to celebrate than by parachuting from a helicopter?

After what appeared to be a hard landing, Bush spokesman Jim McGrath told CNN that after the morning jump, the former president "is doing great."

Tonight, 200 guests will join the former president for a private dinner in Maine.

Bush has spent every summer in Kennebunkport except during World War II, when he was a naval aviator.

The former president has been battling Parkinson's Disease and is now using a wheelchair.
