KENNEBUNKPORT — Former President George H.W. Bush was performing ceremonial duties and posing for photos while visiting an aircraft carrier named for him off the Maine coast.
Mr. Bush and his wife, Barbara, along with their son, former President George W. Bush, and other family members flew by helicopter Sunday morning to the USS George H.W. Bush several miles off Kennebunkport, where the Bushes maintain a family compound.
The 1,092-foot ship is the newest carrier in the Navy fleet and is the only one whose namesake is alive.
Mr. Bush was a naval aviator during World War II.
His visit to the ship was two days before his 88th birthday.
