Memorial Service Planned For Deadly Plane Crash Victims
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A memorial service is planned for Saturday to remember the victims in a deadly plane crash just outside of the Bellevue YMCA.
The pilot, 62-year-old Glenn Mull, his 63-year-old wife Elaine, their daughter 40-year-old Amy Harter and granddaughter 16-year-old Samantha Harter were all killed in the crash on February 3. The family from Kansas was traveling to the National Cattlemen's Beef Association Trade Show in Nashville.
The public is invited to attend the memorial service set for 7:15 p.m. Saturday at the Bellevue Y on Highway 100.
The service will include prayer, scripture readings and music, along with readings by members of the Bellevue community such as Lindsey Ferrier, whose heartfelt letter to Glenn Mull's family and friends reached thousands of people from Nashville to Great Bend, Kansas.
Some members of the Mull-Harter families are also expected to attend.
A preliminary report from the National Transpiration Safety Board released earlier this month helped shed light on what possibly caused the Gulfstream Commander 690C to crash.
According to the report, no incident was reported during the plane's flight from Great Bend Municipal Airport in Great Bend, Kansas to John C. Tune Airport in Nashville. Officials said during the plane's initial decent, air traffic control informed the pilot that the airplane was about a half mile east of the final approach course.
The report stated the pilot initially missed his first approach to the runway and somehow veered off course during his second attempt.
Investigators said no distress calls were issued prior to the plane's impact.
The crash remains under investigation.
