Fallen pilot, fiancee had just set wedding date

May 3, 2010 11:56:00 PM - thestate.com

Diana Cotter heard from her fiancé Jonathan Shively Jr. in a text message Sunday before his military helicopter crashed in a training accident at McEntire Joint National Guard Base, killing him and seriously injuring another pilot.

Shively, 33, wrote to Cotter that he was flying an AH-64 Apache helicopter near their Columbia house.

“That was the last thing I heard from him,” Cotter said.

That morning, Shively and Cotter had set Oct. 2 as their wedding date. They had been engaged two weeks.
