Incident Delayed Blue Angels Performance While Runway Was
A pilot flying a Nanchang CJ-6 Chinese-made trainer at AirSho
Fargo in North Dakota Sunday apparently forgot the "undercarriage"
portion of his "GUMP" checklist, and landed the airplane gear up.
The accident reportedly delayed the start of the Blue Angels
exhibition by about 30 minutes as the runway was cleared.

Pilot Geffery Boulware of Brookings, SD, told the Associated
Press he is not yet sure what went wrong. The FAA preliminary
investigation indicates only that the airplane landed gear up, and
that no one was injured.
Boulware is a retired Air Force Colonel. He is the head of the
aviation program at South Dakota State University.
