Matt Jaworowski, Media General National Desk – SMYRNA, Tenn. (MEDIA GENERAL) -- New video posted to YouTube shows the moments before Marine Capt. Jeff Kuss crashed Blue Angel No. 6 while practicing for an upcoming airshow last week in Smyrna, Tennessee.

The video was posted to YouTube by Matthew Burns. The videographer appears to be outside the Smyrna/Rutherford County Airport and shows the Blue Angels running through stunts. You can see a jet high in the sky and start to drop. The camera moves away to catch other jets flying in formation before panning back to see a giant plume of black smoke.

Seconds later, you hear sirens heading toward the crash site.

Warning: The video contains adult language.
