Blue Angels Honor Jeff Kuss

The United States Navy Blue Angels returned to flying public demonstrations over the July 4th holiday weekend when they took to the skies over Traverse City, Michigan. Instead of the typical six jets, the Blues flew with only five jets as a new #6 pilot is still in the works.

Capt. Kuss’ memory was still shining bright as the team flew in Michigan. Upon arriving in Traverse City, the Blue Angel’s Maintenance Crew marked a spot on the ramp with silver tape, in the spot where the #6 jet would typically be parked.

United States Coast Guard Base Traverse City is also honoring Kuss by flying his number on their MH-65s.
