Report: Blue Angels Plane Crash In S.C.
(CBS) BEAUFORT, S.C A jet fighter flown by the U.S. Navy Blue Angels has crashed during an airshow in Beaufort, S.C., police report. Witnesses say at least one house in the area is on fire. There is no word yet on casualties.

Witnesses say six Blue Angels F-18 jets were flying in formation, and suddenly one jet appeared to clip a tree and then head for the ground. It is not known if the pilot survived.

On the official website, The Blue Angels say the team's aim is to "enhance Navy and Marine Corps recruiting efforts and to represent the naval service to the United States." The airshow in Beaufort is one of 66 shows the Blue Angels are scheduled to fly in 2007. Beaufort is just miles from the Camp Lejeune Marine base in S.C.

The Blue Angels are stationed in Pensacola, Fla.

Wow, I'm shocked. I saw them many times as when I was younger and it's hard to believe out of everyone who could crash a plane, one of them would do it. They are the best frickin pilots ever.

I also remember watching them when I was younger, and they used to have air shows at places like Homestead AFB and Opa-Locka.
