BOSS KOSS RELIEVED OF DUTY AS BLUES COMMANDING OFFICER

Commander Dave Koss was voluntarily relieved of duty as commanding officer of the U.S. Navy Blue Angels on Friday following a “lower-than-normal” maneuver at the Lynchburg (Virginia) Regional Air Show, last Sunday, May 22.

“With deep personal regret I shared with my command today that I will be voluntarily leaving the greatest flight demonstration team,” Koss said in a Navy news release.

Koss, who acknowledged in his written statement that he had struggled at other points in his training earlier in the year, will be replaced by Captain Greg McWherther who commanded the Blue Angels through the 2009 and 2010 air show seasons. Following a period of reorientation practice sessions, the team will resume its 2011 air show schedule, perhaps as early as mid-June.
