Blue Angels perform missing man formation


The U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, performed a Missing Man formation at the U.S. Naval Academy (USNA), Annapolis, Md., as an aerial salute to honor the memory of 1st Lt. Travis Manion, May 20 and in honor of Lt. Brendan Looney, May 21.

Manion was killed in action in Iraq on April 29, 2007. Looney was killed in action in Afghanistan on Sept. 21, 2010. Both are U.S. Naval Academy graduates and were friends with the current Blue Angel Opposing Solo pilot Lt. Mark Tedrow.

The Blue Angels are in Annapolis to perform these recognition demonstrations during the annual USNA graduation ceremonies.

The Blue Angels are scheduled to fly in 68 performances at 35 locations in 2014 and 64 performances at 34 locations in 2015 throughout North America.
