Navy pilot killed in California desert crash identified – Boston News, Weather, Sports

TRONA, Calif. (AP) – The Navy has released the identity of a pilot who was killed in a fighter plane crash in the Southern California desert last week.

Lt. Richard Bullock was killed Friday afternoon when his F/A-18E Super Hornet crashed near the small community of Trona in the Mojave Desert, the Naval Air Forces said in a statement Sunday night. Nobody on the ground was injured.

Bullock was assigned to Strike Fighter Squadron 113 at Naval Air Station Lemoore, California. According to a biographical data sheet, his residence was listed only as Montana. He was commissioned in 2016.

The Navy said Bullock was flying a routine training mission.

“The incident is currently under investigation and the crash site is being secured by the Navy and local authorities while recovery efforts are ongoing,” the statement said. “The Navy joins the family, friends and shipmates in mourning Lt. Bullock for this tragic loss.”
