Memorial for Fairchild airmen set

A memorial for the three Fairchild airmen who died when their KC-135 crashed in Kyrgyzstan will be held Tuesday, May 28 at the INB Performing Arts Center. An air refueling tanker crashed May 3 with three Fairchild Air Force Base personnel aboard: Capt. Mark Tyler Voss; Capt. Victoria Pinckney; and Tech. Sgt. Herman “Tre” Mackey III. The public memorial will take place at 1 p.m. The INB Performing Arts Center is located at 334 W. Spokane Falls Blvd. “Team Fairchild is a strong family,” said Col. Brian Newberry, wing commander of the 92nd Air Refueling Wing. “We remain resilient together during this unexpected and difficult tragedy that resulted in the loss of three Airmen’s lives.”
