Blue skies Lt. Cmdr Kevin Davis, Blue Angel #6

April 22, 2007 at 9:27 pm 5 comments

I’d like to add my heartfelt condolences to Lt. Cmdr Davis’ family.  Many, if not all, in the aviation community feel a great loss.  “Kojak” went down Saturday during an airshow in South Carolina while piloting Blue Angel #6.  CNN story is here.  Messages from the aviation community can be found at Air Show Buzz (some great photos of Kevin posted, too)…and I’m sure in many other places I’m not aware of. 

To Kevin’s family, the rest of the Blue Angels Team, and the Air Show community at large – your grief is shared.

    Fly high our Kevin Davis. Didn’t have the pleasure of meeting you but know Dino Martin, #6, 2002, Blue Angel. I flew with the Navy and grieve with the Davis family. Our hearts and love go out to the entire Blue Angel family. They have given us such spirit and care all these years. So sad to loose a fellow pilot.
    American Airlines lost heavily in 2001 on 9/11. I flew with American during that time. We know how you feel.
    Heads high and know that Kevin left us knowing the risks of aviation and the Blue Angels. May he rest in peace. We solute him. Captain and Mrs. Scott Calkin

    Kevin Davis was a true Naval Aviator. May GOD bless his family and friends. If you think pilot error then you think wrong. Watch as the jet goes down it was not pilot error. Kevin wasn’t even pulling anywhere near the G’s he pulled during promo flights with celebs. The Navy (govt) won’t admit it that there was a defect in the hydraulics in the aircraft. A mechanical malfunction caused his death. What about the failsafe electronics to eject the pilot? Is that feature disabled on the aircraft? I think not. He was my daughter’s favorite. Technology failed, not Kevin Davis! Angels don’t fall, they fly.

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on: www.robreider.com
