A fatal April 1995 plane crash in Coffeyville, Kansas is remembered

On April 19th, 1995, the eyes of the entire nation were fixed on Oklahoma City, but in Coffeyville, Kansas, one family was focused on a pasture north of the airport. That's where a small plane crashed, killing the pilot and a young, Kansas couple.

Ken and Mary Moore were headed for Houston for medical treatment. Ken had terminal cancer, but there was an outside chance the treatment would help. The plane crashed just a few seconds after takeoff.

His family was of thinking about the tragedy Tuesday and the other tragedy in Oklahoma City that is always intertwined.

Victim’s brother Tony Cloke: "I just miss my brother y'know. Because we used to do a lot of things, y'know we used to go place a lot, do fishin', go to Six Flags, we used to go up to Missouri, y'know, just hang out."

Victim’s sister in law Shelly Cloke: “Y'know I think about what we lost and I think about what everybody else lost that day too."

Ken and Mary Moore’s four young children were orphaned that day. They now live with Mary's mother.
