The Thunderbird pilot was part of the demo at the graduation of the current Air Force Academy, around 1pm, after a low pass, he ejected near Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colorado, just after ceremonies at the nearby academy where President Obama delivered the commencement address.
The Blue Angel pilot was taking off in #6 from the Symrna Tennessee airport to join the Navy demo group at about 3 pm, did not change direction from the runway according to the map, seems there was a total engine failure
and seems to have stayed with his plane to keep it from hitting homes, and he died on impact, in a forested area next to a housing area. http://www.tennessean.com/story/news/2016/06/02/navy-blue-angel-jet-crashes-smyrna/85308972/
So that's a couple tens of millions of dollars and one dead pilot. Just what the hell do we need flying choreography for at this expense? Doesn't this country need to repair some dams, bridges, and roads?
