Blue Angels Show In Chicago Short Planes?

Mon Aug 16, 2010 4:31 pm

I am hopeful this is where I should post this. At the Chicago Air show the Blue Angels started with five planes for the show vs. the normal six. They then finished the show with only four. Any idea what happened with the other two? I know for the Saturday show there were some technical problems with one of the planes so they used the spare #7 aircraft.
