Air Terminal dedicated to Navy’s first ‘Blue Angel’
The R. M. “Butch” Voris, U.S. Navy, Captain (Ret.) AMC Passenger Terminal was officially dedicated on Nov. 2, 2000, to the original founder of the U.S. Navy’s Flight Exhibition Team. That team eventually became known the world over as “The Blue Angels.”
Voris and his wife, Thea, joined NAS Jacksonville Commanding Officer, Capt. Stephen A. Turcotte, Rear Adm. Jan Gaudio, Commander, Navy Region Southeast, members of the present Blue Angels demonstration team, several former Blue Angels commanding officers and other honored guests at the terminal.
