Blue Angels invite fans out to first full practice since fatal crash

NAS PENSACOLA (WKRG) – The Blue Angels are back in business!

After weeks of privately mourning their fallen comrade and holding low-key practices, the team invited their fans to watch them practice on board NAS Pensacola Monday.

Monday’s 45 minute, modified, five-jet demonstration was the first official practice open to the public since June 2nd, when Captain Jeff Kuss was killed in a crash in Tennessee.

Despite the rain and the short notice of the open practice, about 2,000 Blues fans watched Monday’s practice.

If you missed Monday’s event, you can watch the Blues practice Tuesday on board NAS Pensacola at 11am. The public viewing area is on the flight line which is located behind the museum.
