    Still no word on the condition of the pilot. My stomach is in knots right now....

    Edit:
    Just got notification that one of the Thunderbird's F-16 also crashed just earlier in Colorado. The pilot ejected safely.

    They are saying one dead in Tennessee but not saying it was the pilot. This is just terrible news. Was reading about the Thunderbirds crash when word popes up about the Blue Angel crash. They said it was a solo and someone got grainy video but can't make much out. Hope the pilot ejected.

    Both teams suffer crashes on the same day at virtually the same time? How does that even happen? Insane.

    NBC news is reporting that the Blue Angles pilot is believed to be dead.
    I am at a loss for words...

    Edit:
    It's confirmed...the pilot did not make it.
    Very sad.

    Sadly ABC just confirmed it!! Just awful. Said he couldn't eject.
    And just saw a picture of the Thunderbird and it looks in pretty good shape, considering!!
    But after spending numerous days watching the Blue Angels soar over the skies of Long Island, my heart goes out to the family and colleagues of the pilot!! Just awful!!

    Saw on the Tennessee Air Show Website that the show will go on. The Beitling Team are now the headliners.
    I wonder how long the Angels will stand down or they just might cancel the rest of the summer performances. Same with the Thunderbirds.
    And with the Angels grounded # 5 might be sitting there awhile.
