Blue Angels lead pilot to visit Newsom Tuesday

The lead pilot of the Navy’s Blue Angels will visit the man who sits in the equally topsy-turvy cockpit of city politics on Tuesday.

The Blue Angels, the Navy’s demonstration flight team, started arriving today and the rest will arrive in the next day or so. Commander Greg McWherter, the team’s lead pilot, or “boss,” will visit City Hall and shake hands with Mayor Gavin Newsom and members of his staff at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to San Francisco Fleet Week spokeswoman Mary Hickey.

Whether Newsom will pick McWherter’s brains about maneuvering delicate vehicles through finicky climate conditions while trying to please a keen audience of hundreds of thousands is yet to be determined.
