A group of bikers came together to honor the Blue Angels pilot who was killed when his plane crashed in Smyrna.

Captain Jeff Kuss was killed in a crash during a practice flight Thursday for this weekend’s air show.

Almost 100 bikers met Sunday at the D & D lounge in Murfreesboro to show support and raise money for Captain  Kuss.

"We're all mourning a loss, and it happened in our community,” said ride captain Rodney Sheckler. “It may have not been for someone we directly knew, but it was a tragedy in our community. He saved a lot of lives.”

The bikers have been collecting money for a memorial bench for Captain Kuss. To make a donation, click here.
