Blue Angels performing again

PENSACOLA, Fla. - Nearly a month after the unsafe performance of a maneuver led to the grounding of the Navy's Blue Angels and a change in command, the team performs again this weekend at the Quad-City Air Show in Davenport, Iowa. The grounding was prompted by a maneuver where the F/A 18 Hornets passed too close to the ground. The team is now under the command of Capt. Greg McWherter, who commanded the group from November 2008 to November 2010. (Source: Pensacola News Journal, 06/17/11)
