Navy's Blue Angels fly over downtown Nashville


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, better known as the Blue Angels, are scheduled to fly their jet fighters over downtown Nashville for a team photo shoot.

The Blue Angels flew their six F/A-18 Hornets in delta formation over the northwestern part of the city on Thursday morning. A seventh jet flew alongside the formation to photograph the maneuver.

The jets flew at about 300 knots and at an altitude of between 500 and 1,500 feet.

The Blue Angels are scheduled to appear at the Great Tennessee Air Show in Smyrna over the weekend.
