This last shot "Snort and the Cat" is not directly related to the Blue Angels. It is Dale "Snort" Snodgrass in an SNJ and Lt. Dey and Lt. Bergstrom of VF-101 Grim Reapers flying in formation at NAS Willow Grove. This shot was taken 18 June 2000, the day before Lt. Dey and Lt. Bergstrom were killed in a crash which I had the misfortune of witnessing. I hope this photo offers my personal remembrances of these fallen aviators. -- Steven E. Serdikoff
