YONGSAN GARRISON, South Korea — A memorial service has been set for Friday for the two Army pilots killed in Tuesday’s crash of a C-12 Huron near Camp Humphreys.

The service is to begin at 10 a.m. at Yongsan Garrison’s South Post Chapel, an 8th Army spokesman said.

Capt. Kevin M. Norman, 30, and Chief Warrant Officer David W. Snow, 37, were killed after their plane caught fire, spun out of control and plowed into an onion field near a small town, witnesses said.

Assigned to Company A, 6th Battalion, 52nd Aviation, 17th Aviation Brigade at Seoul Air Base, they were completing a routine maintenance test flight, officials have said.

Witnesses said it appeared the pilots tried to maneuver the stricken craft away from a busy road and populated areas.

Norman, from California, is survived by his wife, Capt. Brandi L. Norman, currently assigned to 8th Army. Snow is survived by his wife, Amy, and daughters, Emily and Olivia of Fayetteville, N.C.

Lt. Col. Steve Boylan, an 8th Army spokesman, said a team from the U.S. Army Safety Center in Fort Rucker, Ala., arrived Wednesday and began investigating the crash’s cause. No debris will be moved from the site until the investigation is complete, he said.

Another U.S. team is at the site discussing property damage claims with local residents, Boylan said.
