The Blue Angels are back in town this week for Seafair, and they can be seen from many outlooks around Magnolia. They don’t begin their official flights until tomorrow (7/30), but they arrive this afternoon and you may see or hear them buzzing around town.
Some people love them, some hate the noise but its a Seattle tradition for them to fly through our skies and this year the weather looks to be perfect for viewing the show.
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.
By the way, did you know that The F/A-18 can reach speeds just under Mach 2, almost twice the speed of sound or about 1,400 MPH?.
