Blue Angel Flight

A close friend of mine sent me this link to a Blue Angel pilot giving a media demonstration ride in one of the Blue Angel's F/A-18's. It is an awesome set of video clips and shows a little bit of what it is like to fly in a tactical aircraft. And as some who does this for a living, I can honestly tell you it is a blast!


However, shivers went down my spine when I read the name of the pilot that was giving the demonstration. LtCmdr Kevin Davis was tragically killed April 21, 2007 while performing at the MCAS Beaufort, SC airshow. My father, wife, two children and I were there. Our hearts went out for him and his family that day. Our hearts still go out for the men and women in uniform that have given their lives for the security of our Nation and to those Marines, Sailors, Soldiers, Airmen, and Coast Guardsmen that continue to serve around the world.

Happy Veteran's Day!
