Air Force Academy grad killed in copter crash laid to rest

A U.S. Air Force captain killed in a helicopter crash in England earlier this month is being buried at the Air Force Academy in Colorado.

A funeral for Capt. Christopher S. Stover is being held Monday at the academy’s Catholic chapel, followed by a graveside service at the academy cemetery.

Stover was one of four Air Force crew members killed when their Pave Hawk helicopter — a modified Black Hawk — came down Jan. 7 in a marshland nature reserve on the Norfolk coast. They were on a training mission.

Stover is a 2008 graduate of the academy outside Colorado Springs.
