PENSACOLA, Fla. -- The Navy's elite Blue Angels squadron says its commanding officer is leaving the team after the team canceled a performance at the U.S. Naval Academy because of a safety issue.
The team said Friday that the departure of Cmdr. Dave Koss is voluntary.
The team began the safety review after four of the six F/A-18 Hornets flew too low while performing a diamond formation recently at an air show in Lynchburg, Va.
The team also cancelled planned Memorial Day weekend performances at an air show in Millville, N.J.
