Flags To Fly At Half Mast Monday To Remember Those Lost In Plane Crash

Oklahoma City -

Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin has ordered flags to fly at half mast Monday to remember four who were killed in a plane crash Thursday night.

A single-engine plane carrying Oklahoma State women's head basketball coach Kurt Budke, assistant Miranda Serna, pilot Olin Branstetter and his wife, Paula, crashed into a heavily wooded area near Perryville -- about 30 miles northwest of Little Rock.

Budke and Serna were on a recruiting trip.

In addition to flags flying at half mast, Oklahoma State officials said they planned to hold a memorial service, possibly on Monday.

Budke had been head coach at OSU for seven seasons and had a 119-and-76 record. Serna had been an assistant under Budke for ten years, including three seasons at Louisiana Tech.
