Former president George H.W. Bush celebrated his 85th birthday today by skydiving near his family home in Kennebunkport, Maine. Bush 41, who first jumped out of a plane while serving as a Navy pilot in WWll, has been known to mark occasions by skydiving before. He previously jumped out of planes in honor of the opening of his presidential library, and for his 80th and 75th birthdays.
"It's a great, exhilarating feeling," he said after landing. "I don't feel a day over 84."
The Bush family, including former president George W. Bush, were present for the celebration.
