  1. Blue Devils

    The Blue Devils or the 410 Squadron Aerobatic Team was a Royal Canadian Air Force aerobatic team that flew the de Havilland Vampire jet aircraft from 1949 to 1951. The unit was the RCAF's first postwar aerobatic team, and belonged to the RCAF's first operational jet fighter squadron, No. 410 Squadron. The Blue Devils started as a team of three by World War II flying ace Flight Lieutenant Don C. Laubman. Later, a fourth member was added to provide a solo performance. The team gained official recognition from the Air Defence Group shortly after its first show at RCAF Station Rockcliffe on 11 June 1949. Thereafter, the Blue Devils expanded to six aircraft, including a second solo, and went on to fly at airshows around Canada and the United States. Despite a training accident on 25 July 1949 in which Squadron Leader Bob Kipp was killed near St. Hubert, the team went on to become the de facto official RCAF aerobatic team. The team's official name became the Air Defence Group Aerobatic Team in 1950. The Blue Devils were disbanded in September 1950 as its members were posted to different squadrons and the Vampire was retired in favour of the F-86 Sabre. The team was temporarily reformed on 8 August 1951, however, because of an air show commitment. The last air show was flown on 19 August 1951 at the Michigan Air Fair in Detroit. During its three years of existence, the Blue Devils performed at 45 air shows in Canada and the United States.

Examples of blue devils in a Sentence

  1. Mike Krzyzewski:

    Wake Forest : The Demon Deacons had lost four of five coming in, sitting a game ahead of last-place North Carolina in the ACC. Now The Demon Deacons have The Demon Deacons first wins against both Duke and UNC under The Demon Deacons sixth-year coach, both coming in the past month, with Krzyzewski saying Wake Forest was the team that was deserving of winning. I thought The Demon Deacons was The Demon Deacons, Manning said. FOUL TROUBLE Star freshman big man Vernon Carey Jr. had 10 points before becoming one of three Blue Devils to foul out. The list included Justin Robinson the son of retired NBA great David Robinson providing an unexpected lift with a season high six points and three blocks in 12 minutes. That included playing a steady final six minutes of a first half that saw Duke trail by 12 but rally to tie it at 39 on Tre Jones 3-pointer at the horn. Really Justin Robinson saved us or else we shouldve been down about 10 or 15 points.
