Memorial set for 4 killed in Oklahoma State plane crash
STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — A memorial is planned for two Oklahoma State women’s basketball coaches and two OSU supporters who were killed in a plane crash in Arkansas.
Lighted images of OSU head coach Kurt Budke, assistant coach Miranda Serna and of Olin Branstetter and Paula Branstetter are to be unveiled Thursday, the day before the sixth anniversary of the crash near Perryville, about 35 miles (56 kilometers) northeast of Little Rock.
The four were flying to Little Rock on a recruiting trip when the plane crashed on Nov. 17, 2011.
The memorial will include lighted images of the four and will be on the northeast side of the OSU athletics center in Stillwater.
