Fighter jets from the Navy Blue Angels and the Air Force Thunderbirds crashed in separate incidents.

The Blue Angels FA-18 Hornet went down in Tennessee, a Navy official said. A Rutherford County official said one person died as a result of a plane crash there.

The Thunderbirds F-16 crashed in Colorado after a U.S. Air Force Academy commencement ceremony attended by President Barack Obama. A spokesman for the academy said the plane went down far from the ceremony and the pilot safely ejected. Obama later met with the pilot.
