George H.W. Bush's casket is on its way to Texas aboard Air Force One's Special Air Mission 41, following a moving state funeral at the National Cathedral.

What's next: He will lie in repose at St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Houston until Thursday when the church will host a memorial service in his honor. Bush will be buried at the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library in College Station, Texas, alongside his wife, Barbara Bush, who passed away earlier this year, and their daughter, Robin, who passed after battling childhood cancer.
