BrokawInCockpitMONROE, Mich- There was a memorial today for 33 year old Jamie Brokaw of Three Rivers. It took place at Custer Airport in Monroe. 

Brokaw, was killed along with several others on a plane which was carrying freight in Afghanistan. The plane was flying with the privately owned company called National Air Cargo.

That company does a lot of contract work for the US government.

It’s unclear exactly what happened to cause the crash although family and friends had heard that a witness noted that it appeared the load was unbalanced and that may have made the tail heavy. Also it’s uncertain yet if he was flying at the time of the crash.

He leaves behind a wife, Liz, and a step-daughter, Chloe, both of which live in Monroe.
