BREAKING | Blue Angel Crashes In TN…Our Hearts Go Out To All Involved
Multiple Sources Confirm 1 Dead.
This is yet another sad day for aviation and the US military as a whole. RT America, WRCB as well as other news sources confirm a Blue Angel F-18 crashed today during routine practice.
Practicing at Smyrna Air Airport in Tennessee where they were to perform an airshow this weekend, witnesses stated seeing a giant explosion from significant distances.
Medical services were immediately dispatched following reports of the crash, and Rutherford County Emergency Medical soon after stated that one person was killed in the crash.
As this is currently unfolding, no solid evidence has yet been released. Eye witnesses and reporters are the only source as of now, although the Pentagon did confirm that the pilot is in fact the one killed.
