Good Lord, I hope I don't have to wait until I'm his age before I get my chance.
Former president George H.W. Bush marked his 85th birthday on Friday the same way he did his 75th and 80th birthdays: He leaped from a plane and zoomed downward at more than 100 mph (160 km/h) in freefall before parachuting safely to a spot near his oceanfront home.
Bush made the tandem jump from 10,500 feet (3,200 metres) with Sgt. 1st Class Mike Elliott of the Army’s Golden Knights, who guided them to a gentle landing on the lawn of St. Ann’s Church.
To Free Fall. For real.
