Trump plane collects Bush casket for days-long homage

4141 George Bush Locomotive, which was unveiled October 18, 2005, was dedicated to honor the nation's 41st president.

Bush's body will be transported by a motorcade Monday morning from a Houston funeral home to Ellington Field Joint Reserve Base, a Texas Air National Guard base.

Trump will pay a condolence call to the Bush family on Tuesday at Blair House, according to the sources, a government house across the street from the White House.

The highly trained Sully could perform an exhaustive array of tasks, including opening doors, answering the phone, fetching items and summoning help. "He was able to demonstrate that in his four years of service", Powell said on ABC's "This Week". He opened his eyes. And he walks down and I said, 'Mr.

Bush replied: "Good, that's where I want to go".

"The last words George Bush ever said were I love you", James Baker, who served as secretary of state under Bush, told "Fox News Sunday".
