Bob Kingsley, a radio announcer who since the 1970s led country music fans counting down the weekly hits, has died at his home in Weatherford.

After 52 years, the remains of Air Force pilot Col. Roy Knight Jr., who was shot down in 1967 during the Vietnam War, have finally come home.

And the plane that carried them, a commercial jet owned by Southwest Airlines, was flown by Knight's son Bryan Knight, a captain with the airline.

The remains arrived Thursday in a flag-draped casket at Dallas Love Field — the same airport where Col. Knight said goodbye to his then-5-year-old son.

The remains of an Air Force pilot whose plane was shot down in 1967 during the Vietnam War have been returned to Texas by a commercial jet flown by his son.

Authorities say an 11-year old in Springtown was approaching the bus this morning when he fell and the bus ran over him.
