Air Force Pilots Memorialized

Yesterday at Moody Air Force Base in Valdosta, Air Force Pilots paused to remember of two of their own killed over the weekend. Hundreds of friends and pilots gathered to pay their respects to the Airmen killed in a crash in Savannah. Capt. Lee Moore of Statesboro and Capt. Jud Brinson of Thomasville were killed shortly after takeoff Saturday.

"We're all very close, and to outsiders, it's hard to understand how close we all are," said Maj. Simeon Highsmith of the 39th Flight Training Squadron.

The two men were among the first instructor pilots in Moody's 39th. The crash is still under investigation.
