Navy: Blue Angels will resume flight demonstrations July 2

U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, Delta pilots fly in formation over the United States Naval Academy 2016 Graduation Day and Commissioning Ceremony at Navy-Marine Corp. Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Maryland.
PENSACOLA, Fla. — Navy officials say its
Blue Angels will resume performances a month after one of their pilots
was killed in a crash while practicing for an air show.
In a statement Saturday, Cmdr. Ryan
Bernacchi said the elite flight demonstration squadron was grateful for
its fans’ patience as it “navigated through this very difficult loss of
our teammate.”
The Blue Angels canceled performances after
the death of Marine Capt. Jeff Kuss. Kuss died June 2 when his F/A-18
jet crashed just after takeoff while practicing for a Tennessee air
show.
The Pensacola-based team will resume its schedule July 2 at the National Cherry Festival Air Show in Traverse City, Michigan.

The Navy statement says the team will fly a modified five-jet demonstration along with the Blue Angels C-130 plane “Fat Albert.”
