On this day, and in days to come, our prayers go with the family of Lt. Cmdr. Kevin J. Davis, a native of Pittsfield, Mass.. Kevin was piloting the F-18 Blue Angel number 6 when it went down Saturday during an airshow in Beaufort, South Carolina.
Pensacola loves the ‘Blues.’ They’re all family in Pensacola. Our prayers are also with the rest of those who make up The Blue Angels; all the pilots and families and everyone else that is a part of the squadron.
Blue Angels spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Garrett Kasper said the team will return to Pensacola this afternoon.
“We will regroup,” he said.
Miraculously there were no other fatalities.
