National Guard sets Monday service for four airmen

Posted: Sunday, August 01, 2010

ANCHORAGE - The Alaska Air National Guard has scheduled a Monday memorial service for the four airmen who died in last week's military cargo plane crash.

The service will be held at 3 p.m. in Hangar 20 on Elmendorf Air Force Base and is open to all base personnel. The military has also set up accounts at Alaska USA Federal Credit Union for the families of the four crew members.

The four died Wednesday when the cargo plane crashed about a minute after taking off on a training mission for this weekend's air show at Elmendorf Air Force Base.

The Arctic Thunder air show and open house will run through Sunday. Officials have said more than 170,000 people are expected to attend. Officials debated whether to hold the show after the accident but ultimately decided it would go on.
