DURANGO, CO (AP) —
A private burial ceremony for a Blue Angels pilot who was killed in a crash while practicing for an airshow is planned for Saturday.
The body of 32-year-old Marine Capt. Jeff Kuss arrived Friday on the Blue Angels’ C-130 Hercules transport plane.
Residents are expected to line the streets to honor the Durango native as the motorcade passes through the city.
The ceremony also will include a flyover by the Checkerboards, Kuss’ unit before joining the Blue Angels.
Kuss was killed while practicing for an airshow near Nashville, Tennessee, on June 2.
Kuss leaves behind his wife and two young children.
