Memorial Website Created for Bagram Plane Crash Victims
A website to share memories, photos and make donations has been set up for the families affected by the deadly plane crash in Bagram, Afghanistan last week.
A National Air Cargo 747-400 carrying military vehicles and other items crashed just after takeoff at Bagram Air Base on Monday, April 29-- killing all seven crew members.
Six of them were from Michigan--- including Pilot in Command Jeremy Lipka of Brooklyn. Other crewmembers include Pilot in Command Brad Hasler of Trenton, First Officer Jamie Brokaw of Monroe, First Officer Rinku Summan of Canton, Loadmaster Michael Sheets of Ypsilanti, Maintenance worker Gary Stockdale of Romulus and Maintenance worker Timothy Garrett of Louisville, Kentucky.
Services for those crew members start this week.
The cause of the crash has yet to be determined by the National Transportation Safety Board.
All money raised through the NCR 102 Memorial Website will be evenly divided amongst each crew member's family. Just click on the link below to be taken to that website.
