LCDR Deren To Take Over For Major Shipley
The Blue Angels have
assigned former Blues' pilot LCDR "JD" Deren to take over for the
slot left open by the departure of a pilot released "for
undisclosed medical reasons."
USMC Major Daniel Shipley, of Summit, NJ, had flown the #3
Hornet, off the leader's left wing since the beginning of the new
season, before his release. Shipley will be reassigned to new,
non-Blues, duties. Shipley was a graduate of the Virginia
Military Institute, having logged more than 1,900 hours and 179
"traps" (carrier landings).
Shipley was the only Marine pilot, and was just starting a
two-year assignment.For the last several days, the Blues have been
flying a "five-ship" show awaiting the appointment of a new flyer.
Deren had flown previously with the Blues, having joined them in
September 2001, after accumulating (then) more than 2000 hours and
His personal awards include the Air Medal (First Strike/Flight
Award), the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal, two Navy and
Marine Corps Achievement Medals, the Battle Efficiency Award and
various personal and unit awards.
The Blue Angels PAO has confirmed that Deren will be flying with
the team as early as this weekend's performances in Atlanta,
GA. A Navy spokesman noted that it didn't take Deren long to
get "back in the saddle..."
