SMYRNA, Tenn. (WKRN) – – A memorial honoring Blue Angels pilot Captain Jeff Kuss was officially dedicated in a special ceremony Saturday morning in Smyrna.
A jet was hoisted on a pedestal, last week at Lee Victory Park. It is the focal point of the million-dollar memorial.
The jet is like the one Captain Kuss was flying when he crashed while practicing for the Great Tennessee Airshow in June 2016.
The U.S. Navy Blue Angels announced that the flight demonstration squadron will return to the Great Tennessee Air Show June 8-9, 2019.
