Los Angeles • The military pilot killed in a fighter jet crash during a training exercise in Nevada has been identified as Marine Capt. Reid Nannen.

The Los Angeles Times reports that 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.



A website set up to raise money for Nannen’s family says he is survived by his wife and four children.
