Tulsans Reflect On Fatal Plane Crash


{} Bill Christiansen of Christiansen Aviation {}remembers Steve Davis and Wes Caves, they were customers.{}

{} "And it's really a loss for Oklahoma it's a loss for Tulsa, it's a loss for their families," Christiansen goes on to say.

{} The plane is traced to a Tulsa company DigiCut owned by Wes Caves.

{}"Wes was also a pilot and the airplane they had was a pure jet, a corporate jet, a Beech Premier and he'd flown that airplane for probably a year or so, I think," says Christiansen.

{} Steve Davis while known on the football field was also known in the aviation industry.

"Yeah he was a pilot, has owned airplanes over the years. I don't think he currently owned an airplane. Yes, he was a pilot and a good pilot too. He flew some technically advanced planes, multi-engine aircraft over the years.{}

{}Davis attended First Baptist Church in downtown Tulsa. His pastor, Deron Spoo, reflects on Davis' life.

" Actually the last time I saw Steve was yesterday morning in our worship service. He was here before he left. The last time we spoke was at a Fellowship of Christian Athletes event in downtown that he had been instrumental in organizing."

{}Spoo says the conversation was about legacy, which he says Davis has left.

" As a follower of Jesus, we hold two things as the ultimate criteria of our faith, that is to love God, other people and Steve absolutely excelled at both of those things."

{}Aside from {}Davis and Caves, there were two other men aboard the plane who were injured. One of them was a retired Tulsa firefighter, Jim Rogers and his son-in-law Chris Evans.
