US Navy’s  Blue Angels Resume Flight Demonstrations

Monday, US Navy officials said its Blue Angels will resume performances a month after 1 of their pilots was killed in a crash while practicing for an air show.

In a statement, Cmdr. Ryan Bernacchi said the elite flight demonstration squadron was grateful for its fans’ patience as it “navigated through this very difficult loss of our Teammate.”

The Blue Angels canceled performances after the death of US Marine Capt. Jeff Kuss. Capt. Kuss died June 2 when his F/A-18 jet crashed just after takeoff while practicing for a Tennessee air show.

The Pensacola-based team will resume its schedule July 2 at the National Cherry Festival Air Show in Traverse City, Michigan.

The Navy statement says the Team will fly a modified five-jet demonstration along with the Blue Angels C-130 plane “Fat Albert.”
