LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The military pilot killed in a fighter jet crash during a training exercise in Nevada has been identified as Marine Capt. Reid Nannen.
 
Marine Aircraft Group 12 released the 32-year-old pilot's name on Saturday.
 
Nannen died when the F/A-18C went down March 1 on a Navy range training complex east of Naval Air Station Fallon. The Marine jet was on loan to the naval station.
 
The Hopedale, Ill., native was a student at the TopGun school there.
 
Nannen's permanent assignment was at the Marine Corps Air Station in Iwakuni, Japan, and he had twice deployed to Afghanistan during his 10-year career.
 
Nannen was survived by his wife, Sarah, and their four children.
 
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
