Sadly, on Thursday, a U.S. Navy Blue Angels jet crashed in Tennessee killing the pilot.
Hunter Hayes witnessed the crash as he was scheduled to fly with the Blue Angels Team that same day, prior to this weekends’ Great Tennessee Air Show.
According to a source at the scene, Hunter was talking to a Blue Angels Team member when the crash occurred, and was able to see the crash from his location.
Hunter posted a tweet following the devastating crash:
The pilot killed in the crash was Captain Jeff Kuss. It has been reported that Kuss did not eject from the plane to maintain control of it so as to avoid hitting an apartment complex. A true hero.
