NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) — The Blue Angels are back in Tennessee for the first time in three years and pilots put on quite the show in downtown Nashville.
Blue Angles flew over Music City Thursday morning.
The iconic U.S. Navy flight demonstration squadron is in middle Tennessee for the Great Tennessee Air Show.
It’s the first time the Blue Angels have returned to Smyrna since a deadly crash three years ago claimed the life of Capt. Jeff Kuss. Kuss was killed in a training accident the day before the show started in 2016. He was 32 and left behind a wife and children. Now, a memorial in Lee Victory Park of a Blue Angel F/A-18C Hornet similar to the jet flown by Kuss honors his memory.
