    Some random flowers and flags are now along the terminal fence by #5 in tribute to Capt. Kuss.

    Thats very nice!!
    So who does the investigation in the crash? is it a primarily a military investigation of does the NTSB get involved? Where is the wreckage of the jet?
    It might be awhile before a cause is found and with Angel 5 having mechanical issues before the crash they might not let it fly for awhile. Of course that is all conjecture on my part.

    The Navy will conduct the accident investigation, just like the Air Force will investigate the crash of the Thunderbird jet.

    Just saw a few articles on FB that when Fat Albert Airlines is carrying the body of Captain Kuss they are using the Call Sign "Blue Angel 6" and have the # 6 on the front of the plane under the cockpit!
    Such Respect for a Hero!!

    So just saw on the Blue Angels FB page that Fat Albert as Angel 6 is flying down to Delaware to pick up the body of Capt Kuss and return him to Pensacola. When they get to Pensacola they will be met by Angel # 5 Lead Solo Lt Ryan Chamberlain and the two aircraft will to a fly over of Pensacola!!
    A beautiful tribute which should happen around 5:45 ETA.
    It also tells us that the Hornet at FRG is no longer #5 or at least for today!!

    They swap those jets around all the time, just replacing the big decal number on the tail. They had another jet with #5 this past weekend for the show in Tennessee.

    Thanks John I didnt realize they were decals on the tail!!
    And there are numerous videos out showing many different views of the Fly Over in Pensacola last evening!!
    Just wonderful the outpouring of sympathy and respect for Captain Koss!

    Was just driving past Republic and #5 is still there, can't imagine they're in a rush to come pick it up.

    I went by as well. Was thinking the same thing, but i guess it depends on when they'll start flying again.
