Two Killed In Plane Crash To Be Buried At Academy

January 7, 2011, 7:15 AM

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO - A funeral service is planned at Colorado Spring's U.S. Air Force Academy for a husband and wife killed in a small civilian plane crash last month.
 
Twenty-five-year-old Air Force Capt. Martin Anthony Riggan Jr. and his wife Nicole Riggan will be buried at the Academy Cemetery Saturday. The couple died December 22 when their plane crashed at Colorado Springs Municipal Airport.

Investigators say freezing fog covered the airport at the time of the crash and Martin Riggan had aborted a landing attempt before the accident.

Martin Riggan was a bomber pilot stationed at Ellsworth Air Force Base in South Dakota.

Two funds have been established in the couple's honor, the Anthony and Nicole Riggan Memorial Mission Scholarship and the Nicole Riggan Memorial Theater Scholarship.
