CAVU: the code word used to share news of Bush's death When former President George H.W. Bush's family and friends shared the news of his death at the age of 94 on Friday, they used the code word "CAVU," an acronym familiar to pilots that stands for "ceiling and visibility unlimited." CNN's Jamie Gangel reported their use of the acronym on "CNN Tonight with Don Lemon" early Saturday morning, adding that Bush had a plaque in his office with the word. "He always felt it represented his life," Gangel said. "The sky was the limit, and he had everything." 1/14 SLIDES © Loren Elliott/Reuters People pay tribute to the 41st President George H.

In addition to appearing with Carvey, Bush later inviting him to the White House. The two became surprisingly fast friends, as Carvey attests in the video below.
