FLORIDA : Pilot Resigns as Blue Angels Leader

May 30, 1996|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Cmdr. Donnie Cochran said he has nothing to be ashamed of after resigning as leader of the Blue Angels flying team. "I can hold my head high with pride. I haven't crashed any airplanes, none of my pilots has crashed an airplane, none of my pilots have been hurt," Cochran said. Cochran, who has been commanding officer of the elite six-plane team since November 1994, cut short a performance last fall because he had incorrectly lined up a maneuver.
