2 Blue Angels Jets Make Contact Midair During Practice In Florida

Navy Times
16 August 2019

[Too short to excerpt]

Two Navy Blue Angel jets touched during practice in Florida, Navy officials confirmed.

The Pensacola News Journal reported Thursday that the midair incident happened Wednesday while the demonstration team practiced at Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida.

The No. 3 jet made momentary contact with the underside of No. 1′s outer wing during the Diamond 360 maneuver, a Navy spokeswoman told the News Journal.

Only a minimal scratch was found, according to the News Journal.

The teamís weekend performance in Chicago at its annual Air and Water show will continue as scheduled, but the jets involved in the incident will be replaced. The two pilots involved in the incident will perform in Chicago, Navy spokeswoman Lt. Michelle Tucker told the News Journal.

There were no injuries, but a stand down was called right after the planes made contact, the News Journal reported.

Usually a "midair" means both planes coming out of the sky's smoking and in trouble, the Blue Angels even establish new standards for that! Great it was nothing more than a few scratches.

"That'll buff right out"
Seriously, as Taggart noted, this "midair" was so much less then is normally associated with that word.

Just glad both pilots are okay and, as an added bonus neither aircraft is FUBAR'd.
