Safety Stand Down Imposed By Team's Commanding Officer
The Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, The Blue Angels, have
cancelled the practice demonstration and air show scheduled for May
24 and 25 at the United States Naval Academy (USNA).
This cancellation is due to a safety stand down period imposed
by the team’s commanding officer after a lower-than-normal
maneuver that took place during the team’s last performance
at Lynchburg Regional Air Show, May 22 in Lynchburg, Va. Following
this low maneuver all aircraft landed safely without damage or
injury to personnel.
During the training stand-down the team will remain in Pensacola
for additional training and air show demonstration practice. It has
yet to be determined if the Blue Angels will perform the flyover at
the USNA graduation May 27, 2011.
The Blue Angels regret any inconvenience and look forward to
continuing to represent the Navy and Marine Corps.
