Former President George H.W. Bush celebrated his 90th birthday Thursday in a big way – by jumping out of an airplane, again.
The elder Bush no longer has use of his legs and uses a wheelchair, but that didn’t stop him from making the tandem jump in Kennebunkport, Maine.
Bush 41 announced his big day via Twitter, with this tweet:
It’s a wonderful day in Maine — in fact, nice enough for a parachute jump.
— George Bush (@GeorgeHWBush) June 12, 2014
A crowd of friends and family cheered him on as he floated through the air just after 11 a.m. In attendance were his son, former President George W. Bush, and his great-granddaughter, baby Mila Hager.
Bush 43 posted these photos on Instagram:
Former first lady Barbara Bush was quick to greet her husband on the ground with a kiss, as he flashed a thumbs-up sign. The president made similar jumps celebrating his 75th, 80th and 85th birthdays.
