COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Former President George H.W. Bush celebrated the grand reopening of his presidential museum on Saturday with a surprise skydive.

It was the former president's sixth skydive and his first since 2004, when he jumped to celebrate his 80th birthday. On Saturday, Bush was strapped to an expert from the U.S. Army Golden Knights parachute team, as he was three years ago.

Bush, now 83, had hip replacement surgery in January. He said at the time he planned to skydive in 2009 for his 85th birthday.

George H.W. Bush had been U.S. Representative from the 23rd District (west Houston) and ran for the Senate, from Texas in 1970. The only time I have voted for any Bush for elected office. He lost that campaign to Lloyd Bentsen. I've been jaded ever since.
