SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - A public memorial service is being planned for the crew of an aerial refueling tanker that crashed in Kyrgyzstan last week.
The service is not yet scheduled, but will be held in the Spokane, Wash., area.
Meanwhile, details are emerging about the three crew members who died when the KC-135 crashed Friday.
Capt. Victoria A. Pinckney was a mother and college rugby player.
Capt. Mark T. Voss was a graduate of the Air Force Academy and was known for his smile.
Tech. Sgt. Herman Mackey III was humorous and the father of a young daughter.
All three were members of the 93rd Air Refueling Squadron stationed at Fairchild Air Force Base near Spokane, but were operating out of an air base the U.S. operates in Kyrgyzstan.
