WASHINGTON (AP) - A U.S. government plane has arrived in Houston to transport the body of former President George H.W. Bush to Washington for a state funeral.

Bush spokesman Jim McGrath tweeted a photo of the presidential plane on a tarmac Sunday.

He wrote, "Air Force One has arrived in Houston for what will technically be called 'Special Air Mission 41' tomorrow and Wednesday."

The 41st president will be honored during several private and public events in Houston and Washington before he is buried in Texas.
