Blue Angels to fly by Space Needle on Monday

July 27th, 2014 by Laura

UPDATE: if you were like me and sat in the hot sun at Kerry Park… the Blue Angels were a no-show! Why? According to KIRO: “The F/A-18s were planning to fly over the waterfront and by the Space Needle before landing at Boeing Field but ran short on time.”

The Blue Angels are arriving tomorrow for their scheduled Seafair performances. They’re also going to be in the skies around Seattle (and Queen Anne) tomorrow, Monday, July 28th.

According to KIRO, the Blue Angels will be flying over Seattle tomorrow afternoon. They’re scheduled to pass the Space Needle around 12:30pm – a photo opportunity for the media, fans, and both professional and amateur photographers. Expect views similar to this Queen Anne View photo from 2011, taken from Kerry Park:
