Blue Angels scrub midweek show at Naval Academy

The Blue Angels have canceled a practice and show this week at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., days after announcing a safety standown after four of the six jets flew below a specified altitude at a recent air show.

The famed flight squadron said it is scrubbing Tuesday's scheduled practice and Wednesday's show. Navy Lt. Kaitie Kelly, the Blue Angels spokeswoman, says it hasn't been decided yet if the team will perform its traditional flyover at the academy's graduation Friday.

Kelly said the altitude problem involved four of the six F/A-18 Hornets flying a diamond formation at Sunday's air show in Lynchburg, Va. All six aircraft landed safely about three-fourths of the way through the scheduled performance without damage to the jets or injury to the pilots.
