Blue Angels Flyover Navy-Notre Dame Game
Pilots assigned to the U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, will perform a flyover prior to kick-off at the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) football game between the U.S. Naval Academy and the University of Notre Dame at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Ind., Saturday, November 2, 2013.
For a few of the Blue Angel pilots, this flyover is an opportunity to cheer on their alma mater. Current Blue Angels who are Naval Academy grads include Commanding Officer and Flight Leader Cdr. Tom Frosch, Class of 1994, Lead Solo Pilot Lt. Cdr. David Tickle, Class of 2002, and Opposing Solo Pilot Lt. Mark Tedrow, Class of 2004. Flying in the #2 jet is Right Wing Pilot Lt. Cdr. John Hiltz, who is a 2002 alumnus of Notre Dame. As ambassadors of goodwill, the Blue Angels are an integral part of the Navy and Marine Corps recruiting and retention program. By publicly demonstrating the skills and abilities of naval aviators, the team helps attract many talented and ambitious young people to careers in the armed forces, while also projecting the pride, professionalism and teamwork found in the Navy and Marine Corps to millions of Americans each year.

An update:

The Blues continue to fly Mon-Thurs in P'cola but not as a group.  They only launch 1 or 2 jets each time, just enough to keep people and planes certified, but they do fly over P'cola Beach sometimes and they still do PR appearances at the Museum.

David's tour will be up in November, as well as his Navy enlistment, so I'll be looking for someone to take over this group.  Anyone interested?
