Commander David E. Koss will assume command of the U.S. Navy Blue Angels in November of 2010 and lead the team through the 2011 and 2012 air show seasons.

Currently serving as commanding officer of strike fighter squadron VFA-14 in Lemoore, California, Koss was selected from among a group of seven finalists by a panel of admirals and former team members.

Commander Greg McWherter, the team’s current commanding officer, will turn over leadership of the team to Koss during a change of command ceremony following the Blue Angels’ final show of the season in Pensacola on November 14.
