Blue Angels returns to airshows

Jun 26, 2016

The US NAVY Flight demonstration squadron Blue Angels will return  to air show displays in 2-4 July at Traverse City, MI.

This is exactly a month after the deadly crash of team's opposing solo Capt. Jeff Kuss.

"The Team is proud to resume the Blue Angels mission, representing the pride and professionalism of the Navy and Marine Corps, and inspiring a culture of excellence. The Blue Angels are looking forward to flying in Traverse City, Mich., Fourth of July weekend, and are also honored to have the opportunity to perform in celebration of our great nation's Independence Day," said Cmdr. Ryan Bernacchi, commanding officer and flight leader. "Our fans and the entire air show industry have been extremely patient as we have navigated through this very difficult loss of our teammate, and for that, we will always be grateful."

The Team will fly a modified five jet demonstration in Traverse City, along with Fat Albert.
