Blue Angels Crash

PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) -- The Navy Blue Angels have returned home to Florida to regroup after one of their jets crashed during a maneuver over the weekend.

Investigators are sifting through the wreckage to determine what caused the aircraft to crash Saturday in Beaufort, South Carolina, killing Lieutenant Commander Kevin Davis.

The Pensacola News Journal reports today the squadron has decided not to participate in a weekend airshow in Georgia and will skip practice tomorrow.

Family members were waiting at Pensacola Naval Air Station for the team when it returned from South Carolina last night. Lieutenant Commander Garrett Kasper says "It was a very teary-eyed reunion."

The 32-year-old Davis was in his second year with the Blue Angels.
