Smyrna residents held a candlelight vigil to honor husband and father of two, Capt. Jeff Kuss on Thursday. Dick Walstad, the organizer of the “AirSho” in Fargo, ND who has had the Blue Angels perform at his event also said that Captain Kuss is probably was a hero in his death.
The Blue Angel pilot did not eject, it appears so he could ensure his aircraft did not hit an apartment building. That is a hero, folks.— (((Dan Isett))) (@DanIsett) June 2, 2016
“… populated area, a bunch of kids,” says Walstad, about why he didn’t eject. To prevent further casualties. He was a hero, a hero,” said Walstad.Kuss was married with two children. [revad2]
