So as all of you probably know we lost a Blue Angel pilot last week :(

I went through this years shows where the Blue Angels were flying and practicing decided to put together a separate gallery to showcase Captain Kuss flying and in formation with the other Blue Angel pilots. I hope in some small way this helps preserve the memory of this awesome pilot who laid down his life doing what he loves and serving in the world's greatest military. Semper Fidelis Captain Kuss!

Feel free to add your photos of him as well!

VERY nicely done, sir!!!

I have to admit chuckling though, thinking "if there's no Top Gun music in here I'm gonna be mad" as I clicked the link :D
