George Bush the elder celebrated his 90th birthday on June 12th by parachuting in tandem out of a helicopter at 6000 feet. He had done it for his 85th, 80th and 75th birthdays as well. It was his eighth jump. Just watch the first two videos in the series above.

What’s most impressive to me is that Bush has Parkinson’s disease and no longer has the use of his legs and very little control of his arms. So he lands and is placed back in his wheelchair! Talk about inspirational.

According to Guinness World Records spokeswoman Sara Wilcox, the oldest tandem parachute jumper was by 100-year-old Bjarne Mæland from Norway, who made a 10,500-foot jump in 1999.

The oldest confirmed solo jumper was Milburn Hart, 96, who made his jump in 2005.
