Hanford, CA — Officials have identified the two Naval officers who were killed in a jet crash outside the Lemoore Naval Air Station on Wednesday, April 6, 2011. The cause of the crash is still underway, reported CNN.

Lt. Matthew Ira Lowe, 33, of Plantation, Florida, and Lt. Nathan Hollingsworth Williams, 28, of Oswego, New York, were killed when the plane crashed in a farm field, the air station said in a statement.
