Despite the indefinite grounding of the Thunderbirds, organizers for the Ocean City Air Show are still moving forward regardless of whether the U.S. Air Force squad will be there.
A number of upcoming Thunderbirds performances have either been canceled or thrown into doubt following Thursday's crash in a field outside Petersen Air Force Base in Colorado. The June 18 and 19 Ocean City show is one of a number of performances that could be affected by the indefinite stand down while the investigation continues.
In an unrelated incident, U.S. Navy Blue Angels pilot Capt. Jeff Kuss died in a Tennessee crash. He narrated every performance last year, including the team's inaugural appearance at the Ocean City Air Show.
