Air blue crash jet
BEAUFORT, S.C., April 21 -- A Navy Blue Angel fighter jet crashed during an air show Saturday, plunging into a neighborhood of small homes and trailers and killing the pilot, the county coroner said.
Witnesses said the Navy aerial-demonstration team, made up of six planes, was flying in formation at Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort when one jet dropped below the tree line and crashed, sending up clouds of smoke.
Raymond Voegeli, a plumber, was backing out of a driveway when the plane ripped through a grove of pine trees, dousing his truck in flames and debris. He said the wreckage hit "plenty of houses and mobile homes." At least one home was set on fire.
A Blue Angels pilot was killed Thursday when his F/A-18 jet crashed outside Nashville, Tennessee, where the demonstration squadron was practicing for an upcoming show.
"The pilot of the jet was taking off to start the afternoon practice when the mishap occurred," the U.S. Navy said in a statement.
The crash occurred around 3 p.m. local time and roughly 2 miles from the Smyrna, Tennessee Airport, according to the Navy. The other five Blue Angel jets were not involved and landed safely.
The pilot of a US Navy Blue Angel F/A-18 Hornet fighter jet was killed Thursday when the aircraft crashed in central Tennessee, a Navy official confirmed to Fox News.
The crash involving the jet happened after 3 p.m. southeast of Nashville in the town of Smyrna, a Rutherford County dispatcher told Fox 17.
Commander Jeannie Groeneveld, a spokeswoman for Naval Air Forces, told Fox News the crash happened during a practice flight for the Great Tennessee Airshow in Smyrna. The Blue Angels were supposed to perform June 4 and 5 at the airport, but canceled after the deadly crash.
