Same thing happened to Cmdr.Donnie Cochran.
In September 1995, while Commanding Officer of the Blue Angels, then Commander Cochran "grounded" himself and cancelled a performance at Naval Air Station Oceana for what he called "flaws in his flying."[2] On May 26, 1996, Cochran resigned as the Blues Commanding Officer, citing loss of confidence in his own flying. He said at the time, "I can hold my head high. I have not crashed any airplanes, none of my pilots have crashed an airplane, none of my pilots have been hurt."[2]
