This is news to me, though it happened in the midst of a lot of other crap (rape at Duke, again :mad:, and the whole V-Tech thing, etc). This is pretty major to me, because I've always loved the Blue Angels. :( :( We really need some good news..

Well, for those of you who don't know, the Blue Angels is essentially a Navy stunt group, compiled of the best pilots to do airshows. More info can be found in the article, or in some of the links. In any case, one of the planes crashed during the end of the show because it clipped the top of a pine tree, the pilot was killed, and as far as I know, no one else was injured.

I watched a video about it saying there have been 23 Blue Angel deaths. The last one was in 1999 when two planes collided in a training run
