Fake News Hits Air Shows; No, You Will Not Soon Be Able to Buy A Ride With the Blues

January 11th, 2019

On January 9, “Aviation Daily News” published a story that incorrectly states that the U.S. Navy Blue Angels were upgrading to F/A-18 Super Hornets, in part, so that they could begin selling rides in the two seat jets.


Aviation Daily News appears to be an on-line publication that runs satirical articles about aviation that are consistently false and occasionally funny,” says Chris Morrison, ICAS Manager of Marketing, Communications and Digital Media. “The story was clearly not true, but many in the air show business did not immediately recognize that it was supposed to be funny.”
