It’s that time of year again when the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels flight demonstration squadron buzzes Lake Washington in a thrilling aeronautic display! The Blue Angels have delighted audiences across the country for the past 65 years and are a celebrated Seafair tradition here in the Northwest.
Lucky viewers can enjoy the full Boeing Seafair Air Show, including the
Blue Angels, Breitling Jet Team and more Friday, July 31st, Saturday, August 1st and Sunday, August 2nd between 8:30 am (7:30 am on Sunday) and 6 pm.
The Blue Angels jets fly so close to the I-90 bridge during shows and practices that the FAA requires the bridge to be closed to all vehicle, pedestrian and cycling traffic.
The I-90 bridge will be closed between Island Crest Way on Mercer Island and I-5 in Seattle during the following times:
Thursday, July 30: 9:45 a.m. – noon; 1:15 – 2:40 pm (Practice)
