Blue Angels Update: Schedule, Memorial, Video

The airshow schedule for the Blue Angels' 2006 season is on hold, owing to the death of Lt. Comdr. Kevin Davis. For the moment, only next week's planned show in Vidalia, Georgia, has been canceled.

WEAR-TV is reporting that a memorial service for Davis will be held beginning at 7 pm Thursday at the Church of the Holy Spirit, 10650 Gulf Beach Highway, Pensacola. The public is invited.

Meanwhile, CNN News somehow has acquired an amateur video that shows from a distance Lt. Cmdr. Davis' plane lagging behind and then plunging into the trees:

Just out of curiosity how much gasoline do those planes use?

The comment that this was the pilot’s second year on the team and the first as a demonstration pilot leads me to think it might have been last year’s narrarator, who does not fly for that season but joins the team in the following season.sportsbook I know I said in the previous post below that this is not time to speculate, and that is far as I’ll go with my thoughts at the moment.

I have sort of sat on this one but with my love of military flying I knew it would be just a matter of time before I had something to say about the crash of Blue Angel #6 on Saturday that killed the pilot Lt Kevin Davis.Back in 1995 when I flew on a media flight with Thunderbirds I knew it was a once in a lifetime opportunity.costa rica fishingIt was one of the coolest things I had ever done. I still have the pictures, video and signed artwork from the team. I was a treasured day I will always remember.Lt. Cmdr. Kevin Davis was the narrator for the Blue Angels in 2006 and that gave him the duty of flying #7 for the media and celebrity flights including taking American Idol Kelly Clarkson up over the skies of Texas last May.
