        I was just saying to my brother Saturday as we were going into Oceana Naval Air Station to see the Blue Angels, " anything can happen here today, you don't know what you might see."

        It is surreal, especially when they go head to head and play chicken 300 feet off the deck right in front of the crowd. Please don't F this up.

          I had been watching livestreams of the races on YouTube all weekend. The feed was spotty for the T-6 Gold and I wasn't really interested in the Jet Class final, so after the Sport Class Gold race (that Glasair III was haulin' ass and I felt gutted for him when he had to pull out of the race), I did some chores and when I came back to try and find the livestream of the Unlimited Gold, it was gone. That's when I had a sinking feeling, knowing that there would really only be one reason to take the stream completely off: either a racer or an airshow performer had gone down....when a new search brought up a spectator video of the crash, I had my answer.

            My snotty answer is because I do like the jets there either.

              Pilots are speculating it was G-LOC. He was about to cut a pylon (12 second penalty), turned right off the course to try to avoid doing that, and then pulled too hard trying to turn left again to rejoin the course without losing too much ground to the lead. Blacked out close to the ground, and down he went. That's just pilots talking, though.

                They said that professional photographers stationed out at the pylons should have, hopefully, photographs that show if he his slumped over or sitting upright.

                The pilot was Aaron Hogue. He made his fortune manufacturing firearm accessories and knives. Sig Sauer uses Hogue grips on their guns. I have seen Hogue folding knives, never bought one. Hogue produces a Sig Sauer line of folding knives. Nothing special, tacky tactical
