SILVER CITY, N.M. (AP) - Three students killed in a plane crash more than week ago near Silver City are being remembered.

KOB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1wOtEsz ) a public memorial service is being held Sunday afternoon for Ella Kirk, Michael Mahl and Ella Myers.

The service is scheduled for 2 p.m. on the Western New Mexico University campus.

The three teens were classmates at Aldo Leopold Charter School.

School officials say the students were on board the single-engine plane that went down about a mile northeast of Whiskey Creek Airport before bursting into flames.



Authorities say a fourth person who died was the plane’s pilot.

Brian Myers, 16-year-old Ella Myers’ dad, previously said the trio had gone to look at the Signal Fire, which started in the Gila National Forest on May 11.
