Here the Blues fly in the Missing Man formation, an aerial salute in memory of a fallen pilot.  The aircraft missing from the formation is honoring a person who has died and it represents their departure.  On June 2nd of this year, Blue Angel pilot Captain Jeff Kuss died in a crash in Tennessee while the Blue Angels were performing a Split S Maneuver.  A complete stay was immediately put on that maneuver until it is cleared by the chief of Naval Air Training in the future.
