F-18 Blue Angel #6 crashes in Beaufort SC during an air show at the Marine Corps Air Station. The pilot did not survive. My heart goes out to his family, the US Navy, and those who were hurt in the wreckage as he crashed into a neighborhood of homes and trailers. Crews are still working to determine the cause of the crash amongst massive amounts of wreckage.

Tater, I'm so very sad. I love the Blue Angels. I remember seeing them on tv, but have never seen them live. I think I'll add that to my list.
I'm going to go cry now...
