Robin Meade & Fmr. Pres. Bush in Tandem Parachute Jump

Meade_6.9.jpgHLN anchor Robin Meade is going to jump out of a perfectly good airplane alongside former president George H.W. Bush.

Meade, who anchors “Morning Express” will participate in a tandem parachute jump with President Bush this Friday in Kennebunkport, Maine. The U.S. Army Parachute Team, the “Golden Knights,” will be conducting the jump which will take place near the Bush family compound as the family gathers to celebrate the former president’s 85th birthday.

“It’s not every day one gets the chance to tandem jump alongside a former president, with the Army’s Golden Knights; it is both a thrill and an honor,” said Meade.

CNN, HLN, and CNN.com will all feature coverage of the jump, including an exclusive interview Meade will conduct with former President Bush before the jump.
