Two men killed in a plane crash at Naval Air Station Kingsville yesterday have been identified.

Steven DeWolf and Charles Skoda were killed yesterday when the T-6 Texan air plane they were flying in crashed shortly after takeoff from the air station.

DeWolf’s son Jake said “He’s the best damn father in the whole world. He died doing what he loved which was flying that Yellow T-6 Texan."

In an online statement, Missouri State Senator Doug Libla said that Skoda was a former Navy fighter pilot and government relations employee.

“He was widely known and a friend to many in the Missouri State Capitol for several years,” said Libla.
