Current news is a crash of a Blue Angels jet. Pilot killed. These guys are supposed to be the best of the best.

I wonder what the cause will be.

This hasn't been a good week in our country.

What next???????

I haven't gotten the real story, but that's awful. I watched the Blue Angles all the time when I was growing up, had about 4 different sets of the planes - those guys are incredible. But, when you only have 3-4 inches to spare at the speeds those guys fly at, you always have a risk.

Very sad, there were just here last weekend, flew right over the house & rattled the windows & scared the bejesus out of the dogs for three days....still an incredible sight and well worth seeing.

I love seeing these planes.
They always come to the local freedom weekend aloft we have here every year[balloon show].
This show just got moved right near my house so I`ll definately be going to see them this year again.I did live right beside the old air force base here and I have tons of pics of these flying over my house.
I hate to hear about another crash.I believe they had one about 10-12 years ago also.

I think the last crash was in 1999. They've been around since 1946 and have lost about 45 pilots. It is sad about the loss.

Wow, I just read that to celebrate one of his first performances with the Angels, the pilot's parents were in the crowd and witnessed the crash. :cry:
