Blue Angles name 2020 leader

PENSACOLA, Fla. - The Navy Blue Angels said Cmdr. Brian Kesselring will be the team's flight leader and commanding officer for the 2020 and 2021 show seasons. He will replace Capt. Eric Doyle in November when the 2019 show season ends. Kesselring will lead the team during its 75th anniversary season in 2021 and will likely oversee the transition from the F/A-18 Hornet to the Super Hornet. The Navy expects the change to happen in 2021 - the first time in 35 years the Blue Angels have changed aircraft. (Source: Pensacola News Journal, 04/02/19)
