(ABC NEWS) -- Former president George H. W. Bush may be wheelchair bound, but he didn't let that stop him from jumping out of a helicopter.

’41 celebrated his 90th birthday with a tandem skydive near his summer home in Kennebunkport, Maine Thursday.

The former commander-in-chief took the plunge just after 11 a.m., plummeting through the air until a red, white, and blue striped parachute bloomed above him.

He floated for several minutes over the scenic town before touching down in front of a cheering crowd of friends and family – including his son, former president George W. Bush, and his great-granddaughter, baby Mila Hager.
