I was lucky enough to fly with Lt. Kevin Davis, a member of the Navy’s storied Blue Angels precision flight team. Sadly, Davis died in a fatal crash while performing at an air-show in South Carolina about a year later. Here is a video and story of my flight and a story that I wrote when Davis died.
