NASHVILLE, Tenn.- Thrill
seekers got a chance to see some of the country's best aviation pilots in action
The Blue Angels were in
Smyrna as part of the Great Tennessee Air Show. The Blue Angels haven't been to
the show in four years, so Saturday was a treat for those attending.
The pilots say they hope
it not only gets people excited about the event, but maybe a career in
military and naval aviation was something that really captured my imagination
as a young lad. I really didn't know it was going to be naval aviation until I
was in High School and I saw a movie called "Top Gun" and that was
it. I was hooked on carrier aviation and tactical flying and going to Top Gun
and that was what kind of got me fired up about the Navy," said Capt. Greg
McWherter, 2012 Blue Angels.
If you couldn't make it
Saturday, there's still time. The airshow continues Sunday at 8:00 a.m.
