Services planned for Air Force captain killed
HUDSON (AP) — Services have been scheduled for Air Force Capt. Ryan Phaneuf, 30, of Hudson, who was killed in a plane crash in Afghanistan last month.
A wake for Phaneuf is planned for 1-8 p.m. Feb. 28 at Saint Kathryn Church, 4 Dracut Road, Hudson. The funeral is scheduled for 10 a.m. Feb. 29 at the church.
The Pentagon said Phaneuf was one of two Air Force officers killed in a crash last month of an electronic surveillance plane in Afghanistan. The crash remains under investigation, but officials have said there’s no indication the plane was downed by hostile action.
Phaneuf was assigned to the 37th Bomb Squadron at Ellsworth Air Force Base, South Dakota. In New Hampshire, he graduated in 2007 from Alvirne High School, where he was a member of the junior ROTC program.
