General Civil Aviation Authority released a report that the black boxes indicated smoke or fire on the main deck and “lower aft cargo compartment” towards the back of the doomed aircraft. The GCAA says investigators are still uncertain of the causes of the crash. Capt Doug Lampe and First Officer Matthew Bell, reported smoke in the cockpit 28 minutes after taking off. UPS Flight 6 was unable to change radio frequency and could not communicate with ATC. During their descent, pilots had difficulty seeing the flight instruments because of thick smoke.

The memorial service for captain Doug Lampe will be held at two o’clock on Monday at Southeast Christian Church, Louisville.

Funeral service for Matthew Carl Bell at 3 p.m. on Sunday, September 26, 2010, at Immanuel Lutheran Church, 3214 Golf Road, Eau Claire, WI.
