West Seattle’s first major community-group meeting of the year is tonight – Southwest District Council, 7 pm, South Seattle Community College board room. Two major topics: First, an update on the Alaskan Way Viaduct project (just as the tunnel contract is about to be signed); second, the Department of Neighborhoods changes that will directly affect the council’s operations – as first reported here Monday, DON director Stella Chao will be at the meeting to explain. … If you hear a hint of a familiar summertime sound in the sky this afternoon, no, you’re not hearing things – as noted on Tuesday, Blue Angels jet #7 is coming to Seattle for Seafair winter meetings today and tomorrow, and expected to fly into Boeing Field (which might mean a West Seattle sighting) early this afternoon … Check the WSB West Seattle Events page for tonight’s entertainment highlights; have a great day!


  1. It’s funny to think that Blue Angels pilots actually commute with F/A-18s.

  2. Ya, funny. I wish I could get my commute paid for by taxpayers. They should have gone commercial through Sea-Tac like everyone else….It’s a meeting, not a show…

  4. Thanks! We have a photographer there (I’m at a court hearing right now) but his priority is to shoot rather than to send immediate updates ;)

  6. Navy and Marine F-18′s are frequent visitors to BFI — usually on Friday and Saturday’s for some reason. They’re just not usually painted a fancy blue and gold…!
