A bird in an engine caused a Blue Angels plane to make an early landing at an air show in Florida.

Vero Beach Air Show spokeswoman Catherin Caddell tells TCPalm.com the incident on Saturday caused $1 million in engine damage to the Blue Angels No. 5 jet.

Caddell says the Navy brought in another FA-18 plane on Sunday and put a "5" on it so viewers could see a complete show. The six blue and yellow planes then soared over Vero Beach, performing acrobatic skills for the crowd below.
