Some brief overview of this book

The Remarkable Story of a True Hero of American Aviation

First Blue details the epic journey of an unassuming man whose strong character and desire to fly launched him into a life of drama, heroism, and accomplishment unique in his field. He is Roy Marlin Butch Voris, a World War II ace and one of only two aviators ever to command the Blue Angels twice. As a pilot, Butch is unquestionably in the same class as more recognized aviator heroes such as Chuck Yeager and Pappy Boyington.

After the World War II, Voris was personally chosen by Admiral Chester Nimitz to start the Blue Angels and to lead them, first in prop planes and later in jets. The story of his efforts is as exciting as it is inspirational, and its told here in meticulous detail and with great humor. Today the Blue Angels still follow traditions he established.

Praise for First Blue

When you open the pages of this book, you will be flying with the leader of the Blues. Fasten your seatbelt.

—-from the foreword by James A. Lovell

Wilcox has crafted a stirring naval action narrative.... The story ranges from heroic, tragic, humorous to inspirational, but is always spellbinding.

—-Shipmate

The reader follows Voris through the experience of a lifetime, and the realization of a childhood dream to fly high, fast, and proud.

—-Tulsa World

A long-awaited story of how the Blues got started with WWII veteran Butch Voris at the helm.

—-Wings of Gold

Voris dedicated his life to his work, and here, finally, is the remarkable, previously untold account of this true American aviation pioneer and hero: a man whose life had unparalleled influence on naval aviation and whose legacy continues to inspire millions of Americans each year.
