Blue Angels resume schedule

The U.S. Navy Blue Angels will return to the 2016 demonstration schedule July 2-4 in Traverse City, Mich. The Blue Angels, based at Naval Air Station Pensacola, Fla., temporarily stood down, canceling three weekend shows, following a crash on June 2 during a practice in Smyrna, Tenn., in which Marine Capt. Jeff Kuss was killed. The team will fly a modified five jet demonstration in Traverse City, along with Fat Albert, the Blue Angels C-130. The Blue Angels will pick up with their schedule with Traverse City, Gary, Ind. and Pensacola. (Source: NNS, 06/25/16)
