A USA government plane has arrived in Texas to transport the body of former President George H.W. Bush to Washington for a state funeral.
The 41st president died on Saturday NZT at his Houston home at age 94.
Bush's passing puts him back in the Washington spotlight after more than two decades living the relatively low-key life of a former president.
On Wednesday, he'll be honored and remembered with a state funeral at the National Cathedral, where numerous luminaries, including former Presidents, will be in attendance.
Bush's casket is set to arrive in Washington on Monday afternoon aboard the US military airplane that's more commonly recognized as Air Force One.

D'un côté, Vladimir Poutine a déclaré mercredi qu'un prix (du Brent ) aux alentours de 60 dollars était "tout à fait acceptable". Depuis leur sommet en quatre ans atteint il y a presque deux mois, les prix du pétrole ont perdu environ 35 %.
"Mission complete", Jim McGrath tweeted along with the photo.
Americans will begin saying goodbye to Mr Bush on Monday when his body arrives in Washington for public viewing in the Capitol Rotunda.
The casket will then be transported to the cathedral for Wednesday's funeral service - the fourth held there for a former president. "President Trump is scheduled to speak with President George W. Bush this morning and offer his condolences on behalf of himself, the first lady, and the entire country". Bush enrolled at Yale University after military service, becoming a scholar-athlete and captaining the baseball team to two College World Series before graduating Phi Beta Kappa after just 2.5 years.
US President Donald Trump called Bush a "truly wonderful man and will be missed by all". The locomotive has been painted the colors of the Air Force One plane used during his presidency and bears the number "4141" in honour of the 41st president.
Bush was also responsible for appointing Schwarzenegger chairman of the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports.

His time as president was marked by the end of the Cold War and the first Gulf war against Saddam Hussein. "He knew that combat meant the death of people, people on your side and people on the other side".
A photograph shared on Bush's Twitter page shows a photograph of the couple alongside another former President, Bill Clinton, from the day Sully came to live with him.
While Bush's body was in Houston, the golden lab dutifully laid next to the casket, keeping watch over his former owner.
"And 41 said, 'I love you, too, ' and those were the last words that he ever spoke", Baker said. He looked at me, he says, 'Hey, Bake.
