Memorial Set For NC-Based Pilot Killed In Crash

A North Carolina church will hold a memorial service for a fighter pilot killed in Afghanistan.

Captain Mark McDowell died when his F-15E Strike Eagle crashed in eastern Afghanistan in July. A memorial service will be held Saturday afternoon at the First Baptist Church in Belmont.

McDowell was assigned to the 336th Fighter Squadron at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base. The squadron's F-15E Strike Eagle jets and about 300 personnel, including air and ground crews, deployed from the Goldsboro base in April for a four-month tour of duty.
