Four killed in US Air Force plane crash in Alaska
In light of the accident, Atkins said, the military was considering whether to go on with the aviation show, which also features precision-flying demonstrations by the Air Force’s Blue Angels and the Canadian Forces Snowbirds.
In the article on the plane crash, 28 July 2010, at Elmendorf you refer to the Air Force Blue Angels. The Blue Angels are in the NAVY. The Air Force has the Thunderbirds. Some folks get all shook up about this sort of thing.
Several readers called this to our attention. We corrected: GBU Editor
