Blue Angels share posts on first practice since deadly crash”

The Blue Angels posted on their Facebook page Thursday that they were back in the skies and flew around the city of Pensacola, Florida, where they are based.

The Navy had grounded the team and canceled air show performances in NY and OH following the June the 2nd crash that killed Marine Captain Jeff Kuss, who piloted the Number 6 jet.

The team flew its first training flight about 9:30 this morning in a "Big V" formation, with five aircraft, over downtown Pensacola and Pensacola Beach this morning.

A safety investigation report and command investigation is still underway to determine the cause of the crash, but the team is finalizing plans to resume its 2016 schedule.

Their training flight was visible to the viewing public, fulfilling their promise that their next flight would be for the people of Pensacola.

Paugh said, "Just knowing we had the privilege of hosting the Blue Angels has been an unbelievable experience".

"Everyone is here [in the Blue Angels] for a common goal, and discipline, and we like to display that across the country in form of a flight demonstration", he told KIRO 7 News in 2015.

“We know they wanted to come to the Treasure Coast to honor Captain Jeff Kuss”.
