- New at 6:00, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School's principal took the ride of her life today. Michelle Kefford flew with the US Navy Blue Angels. Principal Kefford was selected as their key influencer flier ahead of this year's annual Fort Lauderdale Airshow. We were there as she took to the skies in the back seat of a state-of-the-art jet with Blue Angel Lieutenant Julius Bratton as her pilot.

After landing, Principal Kefford shared some words of encouragement for her students.

MICHELLE KEFFORD: Anything can happen. Remember your dreams, and go for your dreams, and you never know what tomorrow brings. I certainly never thought several weeks ago that I'd be flying in a Blue Angels flight today. So just embrace every opportunity, and you never know what the future holds.

- The Blue Angels will headline the Air Show this weekend over at Fort Lauderdale Beach.
