George HW Bush skydives at 83 for 6th time


Bush celebrated the grand reopening of his presidential museum yesterday with a surprise jump.

It was his sixth and the first since he celebrated his 80th birthday with a jump in 2004. As in that one, Bush was strapped to an expert from the Army Golden Knights parachute team.

His first parachute jump was in 1944 when his plane was shot down over the Pacific island of Chi Chi Jima.
