Killed in the KC-135 crash were Capt. Victoria A. Pinckney of Colorado Springs, Colorado; Capt. Mark T. Voss, of Boerne, Texas; and Tech. Sgt. Herman Mackey III, of Bakersfield, California.
They were members of the 93rd Air Refueling Squadron stationed at Fairchild Air Force Base near Spokane and were operating out of a U.S. air base in Kyrgyzstan that supports military operations in Afghanistan.
