    She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.

      That's really bad. Are they something like the red arrows?

        I'm not sure...I'm not familiar with the Red Arrows. Here is the Blue Angels website. They are a Navy flying squadron. Really impressive maneuvering...the stuff they do would have me puking. k

          NO! THey're from Pensacola, where I got married and where parents grew up and now live. They always do a huge air show every 4th of July right in the bay. Must go read the news. What a blow to the community. Sad

            Oh, Deb, that is so sad! We have a big Coast Guard festival in this area every Summer. So this would be akin to if we lost any of those brave men and women. It would certainly be a major blow. I will be following this story to see what explanation comes of the crash. I'm thinking he must have had mechanical failure with his plane. So sad. k

              Oh, that is so terrible. I am so sad for them. I just talked to my dad and he said everyone in Pensacola is shocked. They are just an amazing and talented group! We have always loved sitting at my dad's house on the beach and watching them practice. It's too sad. Sad Sad Sad

                I really wonder what happened. I hope this won't mean the end of that team. I'd hate to not have the opportunity to see them perform, again. Our son STILL talks about seeing a few minutes of them practicing for the show--and this was 2 years ago, when he was 4. I think they are scheduled to come back, this year. I'll bet they will have to cancel this season, though. Sad The poor family and friends who are grieving the loss of this pilot. k

                    I didn't know that! I wonder where this pilot was from.
