A Navy report is claiming the Blue Angels flight crash that occurred on June 2, on pilot Marine Capt. Jeff Kuss, which caused him his life in Smyrna, Tennessee.
While preparing for an air show in Tennessee the crash has been said to have occurred as a result in pilot error. The Navy report said he could not complete a maneuver in his F/A-18 jet.
He transitioned from a high performance climb to the Split S too low and too fast, and by not deselecting his afterburners during the maneuver, he continued to accelerate. “The net effect of the deviation was that the aircraft was simply too low and too fast to avoid impacting the ground,” said the report.
