Twenty-two members of Skydive Spaceland San Marcos formed a “41” to honor the 41st president, who died Nov. 30 at age 94.

"Farewell to George H.W. Bush, our 41st president," Skydive Spaceland officials wrote on Facebook. "Words cannot adequately express our appreciation of your service, character, and family focus. We hope your family will appreciate this tribute to a great man."

Bush, a Navy pilot during World War II, parachuted from planes to celebrate his 80th, 85th and 90th birthdays.
