Tulsans Reflect On Fatal Plane Crash

Posted: Updated:

  

  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.
