BEAUFORT COUNTY, SC - If you've been wondering why the sky has been a little less blue, it's because the Blue Angels were on a 4-year hiatus because of government spending cuts.

Good news is the Blue Angels are taking flight again and this time with their first female pilot -- Katie Higgins.

Even though there have been women on the Blue Angels team before, none of them have ever been in the pilot's seat, making Captain Higgins the first in the team's 69-year history.
