On Wednesday, Dec. 5, at 3:55 p.m., members of the Texas A&M community and public are invited to watch from the Reed Arena parking lots as an Air Force VC-25A from the Presidential Airlift Group, 89th Airlift Wing, conducts a tribute flight in honor of former President George H.W. Bush over the interment site at the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library Center on A&M’s campus.

On Thursday, Dec. 6, at 4:15 p.m., the Navy will perform a special 21-plane “missing man” flyover above the site for the interment services. KBTX reported that this will be the Navy’s largest ever flyover and will be made up of F/A-18 Hornets and Super Hornets.

The U.S. Naval Institute reported that the lead aircraft “has been painted to list ‘President George H.W. Bush, 41’ where the pilot’s name would typically go and ‘Barbara, First Lady’ where the naval flight officer’s name might go.”
