Blue Angels arrive in South Bend for ND-Navy game

Posted:

The U.S Navy's Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, has landed in South Bend.

The Blue Angels will perform a flyover before kick-off of Saturday's Notre Dame-Navy game. It will be the first flyover the team has traveled to since the government sequester.

Three members of the team are Naval Academy grads, but there will be one pilot rooting for his alma mater. Lt. Cdr. John Hiltz, who flies the #2 jet as the Right Wing Pilot, is a 2002 graduate of Notre Dame.

"It's thrilling," says Commanding Officer and Flight Leader Cmdr. Tom Frosch.  "We're just thrilled to be doing some community outreach around the country."

Frosch is 2002 Naval Academy Graduate.  He says he was inspired by the Blue Angels at a young age.  "To have the possibility to inspire some children tomorrow when they see us is a real special thing," he says.
