CAMP SHELBY, MS (WDAM) -

A Mississippi Air Force Reserve pilot who flew "Hurricane Hunter" aircraft and who died in a civilian plane crash in 2012 is the subject of a new exhibit at the Mississippi Armed Forces Museum at Camp Shelby.

Lt. Col. David Williams flew WC-130 "Hurricane Hunters" from Keesler Air Force Base for 17 years and also worked with Mississippi Power Company for 38 years.

Thursday morning, museum staff, family and friends of Williams gathered to dedicate his exhibit, which includes a flight suit, helmet and photographs.

Williams was one of three people killed when a single-engine plane crashed into a home in Jackson on Nov. 13, 2012.
