A jet flying with the Blue Angels blew out a tire Wednesday during practice for the Reno Air Races, according to a spokeswoman.

No injuries were reported in the incident, though several emergency vehicles could be seen responding on the ground at Reno-Stead Airport.

The Blue Angels are part of the demonstrations scheduled for the Reno Championship Air Races.

Tragedy struck the squadron in June when a Blue Angels pilot died in a crash during a practice flight near Nashville, Tennessee.
