A memorial service will be held near Alexandra on August 4 for pilot Antony Annan, who died in a helicopter crash in Papua New Guinea earlier this month.

The former Alexandra man and his colleagues at charter company Hevilift, Australians Russell Aitken (42) and Emmett Fynn (36), were found dead in the wreckage of their Bell 206 helicopter on July 13, a week after being reported missing.

Mr Annan, 49, lived in Melbourne and a memorial service will be held there tomorrow followed by one at Alexandra Airport on August 4.
