UPDATE: Air Force names pilot in Colorado jet crash

The Associated Press

AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) - The Air Force has identified the pilot of a jet that crashed following a flyover in Colorado. He is Maj. Alex Turner of Chelmsford, Massachusetts.

The Air Force Combat Command says Turner has more than 270 combat hours over Libya and Iraq.

Turner bailed out of his F-16 jet just after doing a flyover at the U.S. Air Force Academy, where President Barack Obama was speaking during a graduation.

Obama met with the pilot after the crash and thanked him for his service. The president also expressed his relief that he wasn't seriously injured.
