The Quad-City Times reported (http://bit.ly/NFUpfE) that Glenn A. Smith, of Frisco, Texas, was the pilot killed in the crash.
Smith was CEO of the Warbird Educational Foundation that owned the Soviet-era jet he was flying.
The crash Saturday created a fireball when Smith's plane failed to pull out of a 45-degree bank and crashed into a field. No one else was hurt. Federal officials are investigating.
Smith was part of the HopperFlight jet team that was performing at the Quad-City Air Show in Davenport.
A squadron of planes flew over the crash site Sunday in the "missing man" formation before the air show continued.
