Golden Knights Display Drops In Bush Library

A new exhibit is flying into the the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum.

Now when you walk into the library's rotunda and look up, you'll see a display of President Bush sky diving.

The mannequin is wearing the actual suit the former president wore at his 10th anniversary library dedication.

Bush has jumped four times with the Golden Knights.

"Last year at the end of the year, we jumped President Bush into the rededication of his library, and he thought it was a good idea to hang a mannequin of him and Sgt. First Class Mike Elliott doing the jump," said Golden Knight Sgt. Joshua Coleman.

The 41st president also jumped on his 80th birthday.

Although his feet will stay on the ground for his 84th, there will be a party at the library this Thursday to celebrate both President and Mrs. Bush's birthdays. From 11:00 until 3:00, they will have free cake, icecream and refreshments in the museum rotunda.

You can also send a birthday greeting to President and Mrs. Bush at the Bush Library website.
