Navy officials said the Blue Angels pilots have been scheduled to resume performances one month after Marine Captain Jeff Kuss was killed in a crash in Middle Tennessee.

The Pensacola-based team will resume its schedule July 2 at an air show in Michigan.

In a statement, Commander Ryan Bernacchi said the Blue Angels have been grateful for their fans' patience as they "navigated through this very difficult loss of our teammate."

Captain Kuss' jet went down in Smyrna June 2, crashing just after takeoff while practicing for the Great Tennessee Air Show.
