Report: Blue Angels jets swiped each other during flyover

Two Blue Angels pilots had a close call when their jets swiped each other during a flyover with the Thunderbirds, according to the Navy Times.

It’s being called a disaster averted because although there was brief contact between the aircraft. The publication is reporting it happened Wednesday in Pensacola.

A Navy spokesman said it happened during the Blue Angel Delta formation. The jets encountered “unexpected wake turbulence”.

Just last year, Marine Captain Jeff Kuss was killed in Smyrna, Tennessee when his jet crashed during an airshow.
