Beginning today, practices for the Navy’s Blue Angels will again be open the public on board NAS Pensacola.
According to the National Museum of Naval Aviation website http://www.navalaviationmuseum.org/ practices can be viewed today and tomorrow (6/27 & 28) from the flight line behind the Museum.
The Blue Angels are still recovering from the crash of the number 6
jet and the death of Marine Captain Jeff Kuss, who was killed in a
training flight in Tennessee June 2nd.
The cause of that crash remains under investigation.
Following the crash, the Blue Angels canceled their next four air show appearances.
They will resume performing at the National Cherry Festival Air Show July 2-4 in Traverse City, Michigan.
They are scheduled to perform at Pensacola Beach July 16th.
Since the crash of Capt. Kuss, the Blue Angels have been practicing 5 aircraft maneuvers instead of their usual 6.
