Missing Pilot's Remains Coming Home

The remains of Navy pilot Michael Scott Speicher are being returned to his Florida home, 18 years after his FA-18 Hornet was shot down on the first night of the Gulf War in 1991.

Speicher's remains are being returned to Jacksonville Naval Air Station around 3 p.m. Thursday.

Speicher's casket will be taken to All Saints Chapel on base, where it will remain overnight.

On Friday, Speicher's casket will first be taken to the Memorial Wall outside Jacksonville Memorial High School. The hearse will drive by locations associated with Speicher's life. He will be buried at Jacksonville Memory Gardens in a private ceremony.
