Blue Angels plane went down today..

Recommended Posts

(CNN) -- A jet flying in formation with the U.S. Navy Blue Angels precision flying team crashed Saturday during an air show near Beaufort, South Carolina, authorities said.


"I was told [the pilot] was alive, but I can't confirm that," a South Carolina state trooper speaking on condition of anonymity told CNN.


The officer said he and other state troopers were assisting the Marine Corps air station, which was putting on the show, by rerouting traffic around the crash site -- "which is said to not be around any houses -- so they can get the pilot out."


Several hospitals said they had received no casualties.

The Pilot died on the crash..


That is just sad news. He tryed to get it away from homes but it was too quick after hitting the power lines he had almost no time to think about anything. He must have been going way to low..


My prayers are with his family and close friends and Team.. Rest in Peace..

Let's stay away from speculating what happened. The news media is already horribly inept at giving the public any kind of factual knowledge about air shows or how the Blue's perform.... Makes me want to punch the anchors and reporters in the face! (Sorry...)


CNN just confirmed; the one fatality reported was the pilot. R.I.P and my sincere condolences to his friends, family and entire Blue Angel family (team)...

My thoughts are with the family and fellow team mates right now. A very sad

accident. There is nothing much one can say when something like this happens. We can remember him as a fine airman and my heart is with his family and friends. Sad.

DCS Wishlist: 1) FIX THE DAMN RIVERS!!! 2) Spherical or cylindrical panorama view projection. 3) Enhanced input options (action upon button release, etc). 4) Aircraft flight parameter dump upon exit (stick posn, attitude, rates, accel, control volume, control-surface positions, SAS bias, etc). 5) ADS-33 maneuver courses as static objects. 6) Exposed API or exports of trim position and stick force for custom controllers. 7) Select auto multiple audio devices
