Two Navy Blue Angels Guilty of Misconduct; Flight Shows Go On

PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) — A pilot and a support officer for the Navy’s elite Blue Angels aerial demonstration have been found guilty of having an inappropriate relationship.

The Marine pilot and the Navy officer were sentenced Friday morning in an administrative disciplinary hearing at the Naval Air Training Command in Corpus Christi, Texas. The Navy is not releasing the officers’ names or their punishments because it says the information is protected under privacy regulations.

Blue Angels Commander Capt. Kevin Mannix removed both officers from the team last week. Since the announcement, a six-member demonstration has performed without its Number Four jet, flown by Marine Major Clint Harris.

As In Combat: Flight Crews Carry On

More than 10,000 people showed up at Kennedy Space Center to watch the Blue Angels Saturday. The Space and Air Show quickly sold out and caused Traffic problems in the area.


Viewers told Channel 9 they waited in traffic for hours before reaching the KSC Visitors Complex. Once there, some were turned away even though they had purchased tickets in advance. According to a KSC spokesperson, there was simply not enough room for everyone.

    Times have changed since my Navy flying days. The Blues always had chicks that Formula One race car drivers would drool over. I used to watch these girls meet them at Traders. Back when the Blues all drove Shelbys you could see the long blond hair flying from 5 miles away. Pensacola is a ghost town, Corpus, a morticians dream and even Breezy Pines closes at 7:45 pm on Friday nights.
    I blame this deal on the Tail Hook witch hunt. Today the rear end kissers and religious fanatics run the Navy. All we did was chase chicks, get drunk, and get killed or captured at the rate of one in seven. We were a wilder bunch than the guys you see on ” Mad Men.” It was great to think you would live forever.
