Members of the U.S. Navy have honored their fallen brother by paying tribute to Captain Jeff Kuss.

The Navy conducted a flyover in Pensacola, Florida Tuesday as the Blue Angels delivered Captain Kuss' body to their home naval air station.

Kuss' jet went down in Smyrna last week during a practice run for the Great Tennessee Air Show.

A memorial ceremony has been scheduled for Thursday on base.

The Blue Angels canceled performances in New York and Ohio following Captain Kuss' tragic death.
