Get ready for the Blue Angels

Posted by Geeky Swedes on July 30th, 2009

The Blue Angels are back for their annual airshow at Seafair.

The Navy F/A-18 performers will be practicing today and tomorrow before their official shows this weekend. WSDOT has information on the I-90 closures.

Here is the flight schedule for those of you who want to see them or just need a little advance warning since they can be pretty loud.

  • Thursday, July 30 – 9:45 a.m. to noon, and 1:15 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
  • Friday, July 31 – 12:45 p.m. to 2:40 p.m.
  • Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 1 & 2 – 12:45 p.m. to 2:40 p.m.
  • Where is your favorite place to watch the Blue Angels?

      Wouldn't the money be better spent building pea patches for underprivileged gang members? And what about the carbon footprint? I though we cared more about the planet?

      Vizualize world peace!

      SPG, I worked with someone who had just fled the war in Bosnia a few months before the Blue Angels came to town – I have never seen someone as terrified as she was when the planes flew over. It's a fear that most Americans are lucky enough to never have. I was somehow unable to convince her that they were “fun”.
