A U.S. government plane has arrived in Texas to transport the body of former President George H.W. Bush to Washington for a state funeral.

Mr Bush, who served as the 41st United States president between 1989 and 1993, died late on Friday at the age of 94. When Former President George W. Bush declared one for Gerald Ford's death in 2007, it was marked on the day of his January funeral at Washington's National Cathedral, closing the federal government and financial markets, as will happen for Bush on December 5. Trump also announced that he'll be sending one of the Boeing 747s that serves as Air Force One to Houston to transport Bush's casket to Washington, D.C.

"It's important to me to join the Bush family in celebrating President George H.W. Bush's exemplary life", she tweeted.

"A attractive day In Texas - 'ceiling and visibility unlimited, ' Mr. President", he wrote, in reference to the aviation code phrase for a desirable situation, one used by Bush's family and friends to spread the news of his death.

State funerals are traditionally held for current or former presidents and other officials designated by the president. Trump and the first lady, Melania Trump, are scheduled to attend.
