LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Family and friends gathered on Monday to say goodbye to the UPS pilot who died in a plane crash in Dubai.

Captain Doug Lampe's funeral was held this afternoon at Southeast Christian Church.

Lampe along with another pilot from Florida died when their cargo jet went down shortly after taking off from a Dubai Airport on September 3.

Investigators say a fire on board filled the cockpit with smoke, but they are still looking into what caused the crash.
