December 25, 2010, 11:25 AM
RAPID CITY, SD - Flags at Ellsworth Air Force Base are flying at half-staff in honor of an airman and his wife who died in
a Colorado plane crash.
1st Lieutenant Martin Anthony Riggan of Little Rock, Arkansas was a B-1B Lancer pilot assigned to the 37th Bomb Squadron. The 25-year-old pilot and his wife, Nicole Riggan, were killed Wednesday when their small civilian aircraft went down east of the runway at the Colorado Springs airport.
Airport officials say their tower lost communication with the aircraft around noon while it was trying to make a second attempt at landing. The couple was traveling to Colorado to see Nicole's family for the holidays.
