That's crazy that one from the Blue Angels and one from the Thunderbirds crashed on the same day (I know I'm echoing). Very sad that one lost his life. It may seem out of character but there's something about watching fighter jets that humbles you and gives you goosebumps.
The pilot of the No. 6 jet, Maj. Alex Turner, is being medically evaluated after he ejected safely, Air Force officials said during a press conference. He joined the team in October 2015, officials said. The No. 6 jet is one of the solo pilot aircraft
An initial Navy incident report says the Blue Angels jet crashed just after takeoff in a residential area and the pilot is not believed to have ejected. The report identifies it as Blue Angels plane No. 6. There are no reports of any civilians injured or homes damaged.
