Report: Angels Pilot Too Low, Fast

It all happened so fast that the other Blue Angels pilots, flying in a close six-jet pattern, barely had time to register something was wrong. The elite demonstration team’s flight surgeon, watching from the ground at the Smyrna, Tennessee, airport, noticed one of the aircraft in rapid descent. “Kooch check alt,” he radioed, using the […]

MOUNTAIN HOME AIR FORCE BASE, Idaho -- Capt. Christopher Stricklin ejects from the USAF Thunderbirds number six aircraft less than a second before it impacted the ground at an air show at Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho, Sept. 14. Stricklin, who was not injured, ejected after both guiding the jet away from the crowd of more than 60,000 people and ensuring he couldn't save the aircraft. This was only the second crash since the Air Force began using F-16 Falcons for its demonstration team in 1982. The ACES II ejection seat performed flawlessly. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Bennie J. Davis III)

Most of the Stearmans brought to Galesburg are flown every day. They’re definitely not “hangar queens” or museum pieces. The Stearmans […]
