A memorial service for the four North Carolina Air National Guard airmen killed when their plane crashed earlier this month will be Tuesday.
Officials said only the airmen's families, invited guests and members of the 145th Airlift Wing will be able to attend the private service at 9 a.m. at the unit's base in Charlotte. A television crew will be allowed to broadcast the ceremony.
Lt. Col. Paul Mikeal, Maj. Joseph McCormick, Maj. Ryan David and Senior Master Sgt. Robert Cannon all died on July 1, when their C-130 crashed while fighting a wildfire in the South Dakota Black Hills. Two other crewmen were injured. Their names and conditions have not been released.
