Blue Angels Take Flight In Wayne County

The Blue Angels flew for the first time, Saturday, since a crash last month killed one of the Navy team's elite pilots in South Carolina.

More than 75-thousand spectators attended the air show at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base at Goldsboro.

Aerobatic flights by the Blue Angels were the finale of the annual air show. Base spokeswoman Captain Kristen Duncan says the Angels flew for about an hour and called the event an outstanding show.

The team canceled two performances after the crash that killed Lieutenant Commander Kevin Davis at a Beaufort, South Carolina, show.
