Blue Angels dedicate show to victim of Amtrak crash

The Blue Angels dedicated their air show in Annapolis, Maryland, to the U.S. Naval Academy midshipman who died in last week's Amtrak train derailment in Philadelphia.

The Blue Angels performed on Wednesday as part of the academy's class of 2015 graduation events.

Midshipman Justin Zemser was a 20-year-old student in his second year at the academy. Zemser was a native of Rockaway Beach, New York.

Four Naval Academy graduates are part of the Blue Angels team, including the first female pilot in the team's 69-year history. Marine Corps Capt. Katie Higgins is a graduate of the class of 2008.
