The U.S. Navy Blue Angels pilot that was killed in Thursday's crash in Tennessee performed at the Tuscaloosa Regional Air Show in 2015. U.S. Marine Capt. Jeff Kuss was piloting one of the six F/A-18 jets at a practice in Smyrna when the mishap occurred at 3:01 PM.

Kuss was a part of the team that traveled to Alabama in 2015 to perform in Tuscaloosa. At that time, he was flying Blue Angel 7.

Take a look at a couple of pictures from his visit to Tuscaloosa.

He also piloted the jet that took WBRC reporter Terrie Brewer on a flight when the media had an opportunity to experience these incredible planes. The television station shared this report on Thursday night.
