McWherter Receives Special Achievement Award

December 17th, 2012

The Board of Directors of the International Council of Air Shows presented its ICAS Special Achievement Award to Captain Greg McWherter, outgoing team lead for the U.S. Navy Blue Angels. McWherter, who led the team for a total of four years, was recognized for his efforts to integrate the team more fully into the larger air show community, as well as the personal and professional sacrifices he made when he volunteered to serve a second two-year stint as Blue Angels “boss.”

McWherter is shown here accepting the award from ICAS President John Cudahy at the annual ICAS Chairman's Banquet on Thursday, December 13 at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel.
