DURANGO, Colo. (AP) - Durango is getting ready to honor a Blue Angels pilot killed in a crash in Tennessee last week.

Marine Capt. Jeff Kuss crashed near Nashville while taking off for a practice session ahead of a weekend air show.

The Durango Herald (https://bit.ly/1PiNgvT) reports that Kuss will be buried in a private ceremony Saturday in his hometown. Residents are expected to line the streets to honor him as the motorcade passes through the city.

The ceremony will include a flyover by the Checkerboards, Kuss’ unit before joining the Blue Angels.
