ENID, Okla. (KFOR) – Vance Air Force Base is planning to honor two airmen who were killed in a training accident just two weeks ago.
The airmen were identified as Lt. Col. John ‘Matt’ Kincade, a 47-year-old instructor pilot assigned to the 5th Flying Training Squadron, and 2nd Lt. Travis B. Wilkie, a 23-year-old student pilot assigned to the 71st Student Squadron.
The pair was killed last month during the landing phase of a formation training flight.
Vance Air Force Base is planning to hold a memorial for Wilkie at 11 a.m. on Thursday, while a memorial for Kincade is scheduled for 2:05 p.m.
Services are not open to the public but anyone with base access may attend.
At this point, officials are still working to determine what caused the crash.
