A test pilot killed in an F-22 fighter jet crash in the high desert of Southern California is being remembered in his hometown of Belleville.
The Air Force is trying to pinpoint what caused the crash.
Cooley was a 21-year Air Force veteran who joined Lockheed Martin in 2003.
He graduated from Belleville East High School, where he was a standout soccer player and was the team captain.
His father, Bill Cooley, is a retired Air Force master sergeant. He said his son flew a wide inventory of aircraft and had been testing the Raptor jet for several years.
