BEAUFORT, S.C. (AP) - A Navy F-18 Blue Angel plane crashed during an air show Saturday, according to televised reports. Witnesses said the planes were flying in formation, and then one dropped down below the trees and apparently crashed.
“The next thing I seen was just a big black cloud of smoke,” Gerald Popp, who lives nearby, told CNN.
It was not known if the pilot survived.
At the Blue Angels command headquarters at Pensacola Naval Air Station the petty officer duty said he “had no comment at this time.”
