Blue Angels Fat Albert Makes Emergency Landing

Thu Aug 07, 2003 6:57 am

"Fat Albert" also known as the Blue Angeles C-130 support aircraft had to make an emergency landing at BFI this afternoon. The C-130 was departing Seattle with the Blue Angels F-18's from BFI for Abbotsford, BC for the big airshow up there this weekend. The F-18's continued on to Abbotsford.

That would explain why I didn't see Fat Albert out there today in Abbotsford while I was helping set-up for the Abbotsford Airshow, which should be excellent by the way. The Blue Angels were out practising, and a United States military DC-9 was also there. Tomorrow should be the big fly-in day for the show.
